Former Warri Wolves forward Austin Amutu found the back of the net to continue his salivating form for Al Masry who humbled Enppi 3-1 at the Egyptian Army Stadium on Tuesday.
The bulky striker has scored two goals in the Egyptian Premier League for the club since he completed a mid season transfer move.
Another Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) product Emeka Eze was named in the Al Masry starting XI but was replaced by Islam Eissa in the 58th minute.
Ezekiel Bassey who had an uneventful stint at Barcelona B in the past wasn’t dressed for the game.
Palestinian striker Mahmoud Wadi shot Masry ahead after 13 minutes but Enppi’s Emad Fathi converted a low cross early in the second half to level the score.
Amutu restored Masry’s advantage in the 74th minute and substitute Eissa ensured the win with six minutes remaining in bizarre fashion.
Enppi’s keeper Amr Hossam was red-carded for fouling Amutu outside of the area and, with the team having already made their three substitutions, defender Rami Sabri was forced to assume the goalkeeping duties and he was powerless to stop Eissa’s ensuing free-kick from going in.
Masry lie fourth in the table with 35 points, ahead of fifth-placed Maqassa on goal difference as they chase a CAF Confederation Cup spot.
