Modern Future and Club Africain claim important wins at home


Egyptian side, Modern Future narrowly edged SuperSport United of South Africa by a goal thanks to a late Ghanam Mohamed strike to secure a vital win at home their opening TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup group match on Sunday.

For the better part of the match, the South Africans held their nerve against the north African side who couldn’t break the Gavin Hunt led side.

It was only in the 76th minute that Ghanam Mohamed found the only goal of the match to give his side the hard-fought victory against United.

The victory for Future sets them up for the hard task ahead of them next week when they face Al Hilal Benghazi in Libya.   

Meanwhile in another fixture in North Africa, Tunisia’s Club Africain cruised past Ghana’s Dreams FC with a 2-0 victory at home.

The Tunisians bossed their West African opponents from the opening whistle, with goals by Tayeb Meziani in the 5th minute along with a Kingsley Eduwo strike in the 19th minute to put the match to bed from the onset.

Dreams will have the opportunity to redeem themselves next week in an interesting tie against Nigeria’s Rivers United at home, while the Tunisians travel to Angola to face Academica do Lobito.
