Pyramids FC trashed Etoile du Congo 4-1 in Cairo | Confederation Cup

Egyptian Premier League rising power Pyramids FC defeated Etoile du Congo 4-1 on Saturday in Cairo in their first-ever Confederation Cup game.

New signing John Antwi broke the deadlock in the 19th minute after connecting with a fine cross from Abdallah El-Said.

Three minutes later, Eric Traore doubled his team’s lead with a powerful strike in the top corner.

Then Ghanaian striker Antwi grabbed his brace after powering a header from inside the box on the left hand side of the keeper in the 33rd minute.

The visitors pulled one back as Bienvenue Kombo scored in the 86th minute following a defensive blunder to throw a lifeline for the Congolese.

But substitute striker Ahmed Ali converted a penalty kick in injury time that he earned himself after being brought down in the area.

 

Pyramids FC, who splashed millions of dollars last season to rebuilt their squad, finished third in the league behind Ahly and Zamalek.
