Lithuanian referee Gediminas Massika canceled the summit game between Al-Ahly and Zamalek at Cairo Stadium, postponed from the fourth round of the Egyptian Football League, because Zamalek’s team did not attend the match stadium.
And it was decided to postpone the game for 60 minutes due to the lack of arrival of the Zamalek team bus due to traffic congestion and bad weather.
Then the referee gave a 30-minute deadline for the arrival of Zamalek, but the white team announced that its bus had been disrupted and that its players had not reached the Cairo stadium after it had confirmed earlier that the junior players would go through the match.
? We regret this scene …
The regulations will be applied
Note that coordination has been done with security and we have found that there are no obstacles preventing the teams’ buses from reaching the match field.#EFApic.twitter.com/F7X0qOKY4h
