Cairo, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 27th Nov, 2020 ) :Three stars each from Egyptian clubs Al Ahly and Zamalek have tested positive for coronavirus and will miss the CAF Champions League final in Cairo Friday, according to Egyptian football officials.
The Ahly trio of Walid Soliman, Saleh Gomaa and Malian Aliou Dieng are midfielders while the Zamalek victims include defenders Mahmoud 'El Wensh' Hamdy and Abdallah Gomaa, and midfielder Youssef 'Obama' Ibrahim.
The side that wins the first single-match title decider since 1965 is assured of at least $3.5 million (2.93 million Euros), which includes a minimum $1 million for competing in the FIFA Club World Cup.
Zamalek have never featured in the Club World Cup as their five Champions League successes came before it was turned into a multi-continent tournament.
