The board of Al-Merreikh has invited Mohamed Abou-Treika, forward of Egyptian league holders Ahly, and Zamalek striker Amr Zaki to play with the Sudanese club in the commemoration game of Nigerian striker Endurance Idahor, against one premier league team.

The 25-year-old Idahor collapsed during a league game and later died on his way to hospital in March 2010. The Nigerian striker joined the Sudanese side in the winter transfer window of 2006 season and became a key player in the first team squad, the top scorer, while leading the club to their first CAF Confederation Cup final since 1989.

Mohamed Abou Treika is the seventh player who reached the Egyptian Premier League's 100-goal milestone, joining Hassan El-Shazly (176 goals), Hossam Hassan (168), Mostafa Riad (123), Sayed El-Dozwi (112), Mahmoud El-Khatib (108) and Ahmed El-Kas (107) in the 100-goal club.

Zamalek striker Amr Zaki joined English Premier League outfit Wigan in 2008 as he snatched the third top scorer place behind Chelsea's Anelka and Manchester City's Robinho, who had 15 and 12 respectively to Zaki's 10. However, he failed to add to that tally in which Anelka finished top with 19.
