Ulinzi exit Champions League

NAIROBI, Kenya, February 28- The curtain came down on Ulinzi’s debut African campaign after losing their CAF Champions League return leg match to Zamalek 1-0 on Sunday.

Mahmud Abdel Razek got the winner for the home team in the 67th minute making sure the Egyptian giants finish with a 5-0 aggregate after Zamalek crushed the Kenya Premier League (KPL) champions 4-0 in Nairobi.

The match was postponed for a fortnight following sustained political unrest in the North African country that ultimately led to the ouster of former president Hosni Mubarak.

Both teams donned black armbands in memory of those who lost their lives during the strife and spectators sang nationalistic songs and waved patriotic banners at the 22,000-seat stadium.
The victory takes Zamalek to the last-32 stage of the Champions League where they will face Club Africain of Tunisia or APR of Rwanda, who meet Friday in Tunis after a drawn first leg.
