Egyptian giants Zamalek suffered a humiliating exit from the African Confederation Cup on Sunday, losing 4-3 on penalties at home to Ethiopia's Welayta Dicha in the second leg of their last-32 tie.

Zamalek, five times former champions of Africa, were beaten by a side playing in an African club competition for the first time.

Welayta Dicha have now qualified for the Confederation Cup play-offs where they will face one of the African Champions League last-32 losers.

The Ethiopians came armed to Egypt with a 2-1 advantage from the first leg of the continent's second-tier club tournament.

On Sunday, the scoreline was reversed with Zamalek winning their home leg 2-1.

Ahmed Madbouli had given the Egyptians a 2-0 lead, but Welayta Dicha levelled the aggregate score to 3-3 with a goal from Abdel-Samad.

That took the contest into a tense penalty shoot-out in front of Zamalek's own fans.

The pressure told on the hosts who missed two of the spot-kicks, with the visitors winning 4-3 to record a famous victory.

It is a further blow for Zamalek, whose arch-rivals Al Ahly won the domestic league title in Egypt last week.

Zamalek are currently third in the Egyptian league standings.

    Having read this I believed it was very informative.

    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
