The story of the Zamalekawy tournament ... the 2008 Cup, the only smile in 8 lean years

Zamalek club has a great sports and football stature, whether inside Egypt or at the level of African countries or in various Arab countries, as Zamalek is considered one of the poles of Egyptian football with history, tournaments and achievements, and what he presented to Egyptian and Arab football from stars who contributed to raising Egypt's name high in international forums.

Throughout its history, Zamalek has won many championships, whether the league, the cup, the African Champions League and the African Confederation and other championships with its new and old name, as Zamalek club has achieved throughout its long history since its establishment in 1911 until now 97 championships over a period of 110 years.

In the following lines, the "seventh day" monitors the story of the Zamalekawy tournament, by narrating the story of the 2008 Egyptian Cup, which Zamalek obtained after winning Ali Enppi with two goals to one in the final match.

Perhaps the importance of the tournament was that it came in the midst of 8 years. Zamalek did not win any local or foreign championships after the club entered into conflicts within its boards of directors from 2005 to 2013.

Zamalek qualified for the final match after overcoming the Suez Cement hurdle in the Round of 8 with a score of 1/4, and in the semi-final round, it won over the stubborn Haras al-Hodoud with two goals to one

And in the final match of the tournament, which was held on May 25 at Cairo Stadium, Osama Hassan advanced to Zamalek from a penalty kick before Enppi equalized through Muhammad Yunus, before Amr Zaki scored the winning goal in the 81st minute, announcing Zamalek's crowning the only championship for 8 years.
