Agogo On Target For Zamalek

By Our Sports Reporter -

Black Stars striker Manuel Junior  Agogo marked his return to  Zamalek with a goal in a 4-1 away win over ENPPI in the Egyptian League on Tuesday.

Agogo opened the scoring  in the 25th minute before goals on  Al-Safti, Magdi and Ashraf sealed it in the  51st,74th and 80th minutes respectively.

Zamalek fans expressed their disatisfaction over the exclusion of Agogo from the squad in last Friday's 1-0 loss to El-Geish.

But head coach Reiner Hollman explained his decision of dropping the bulky striker to his late arrival from international duty.

The Ghanaian forward has struggled to settle in Egypt but his recent form is expected to inspire him.

l  Ghana's Michael Essien has been named in the FIFPro World XI Players Awards shortlist.

The 25-year-old Chelsea player is among the 55 players nominated for the annual awards by the world players' union.

Essien was nominated for his contribution for Chelsea  towards the Champions League final in May.

The final World XI and the FIFPro World player of the Year will be announced on October 27.

The 55 players were voted for by the 45 000 professional players that belong to the 42 professional organisations from around the world that form FIFPro.

They were asked to name a World XI, with a basic 4-3-3 formation and the majority chose players that plied their trade in either England or Spain last term.
