Pyramids score late winner against Zanaco but still finish 2nd in Confed Cup group

Ahram Online , Monday 4 Apr 2022

Winger Eslam Issa scored in stoppage time as already-qualified Pyramids FC earned a 1-0 home win over Zambia's Zanaco but they could not overtake Group A leaders Ahly Tripoli in the African Confederation Cup on Sunday.


Issa latched onto a fine threaded pass from veteran playmaker Abdallah El-Said to break clear and score from close range.

Despite the win, the Egyptian side remain second in their group with 13 points, on level with leaders Ahly Tripoli as both sides advanced to the knockout stage. 

The Libyan side topped the group due to their better head to head record over Pyramids.

They lost 2-1 to Pyramids in Cairo before claiming a 1-0 win at home.
