The truth is that Bwalya cannot participate in tomorrow’s match, as he was not registered as an African before the 32nd round of the competition.
The African Union will open the second registration door on the tenth of January, meaning that the player is entitled to participate in the Al-Ahly shirt, starting from the next group stage.
Zambian Walter Bwalya joined Al-Ahly from El Gouna during the current winter transfer period.
Al-Ahly defeated Nigerian champion Sonideb in the latter’s stadium two weeks ago with a clean goal. A draw in Cairo is sufficient for him to reach the group stage of the new edition of the African Champions League, whose title is held by the red genie.
