African Super Cup

African Super Cup scheduled for Addis Ababa

03.01.2007


This year's African Super Cup between Champions League winners Al Ahly of Egypt and African Confederation Cup winners Etoile Sahel of Tunisia will be played in Addis Ababa, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said.

Tunisian officials previously said the venue would be in Khartoum, Sudan, to form part of the African football body's 50th anniversary celebrations.

But in a statement on its Web site (www.cafonline.com), CAF said the game would be played in the Ethiopian capital which is also one of the venues for the anniversary celebrations.

CAF are holding meetings and matches in Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan and South Africa, the four founder members of the organisation, throughout this year.

Al Ahly have been forced to concede home advantage although traditionally the Super Cup is hosted by the Champions League winner.

Al Ahly will be seeking a third Super Cup to follow on previous triumphs in 2002 and last year.

Etoile Sahel, who won the African Confederation Cup last month, have also had previous Super Cup success in 1998.

African Super Cup 2008:
Chermiti is hero and villain as Etoile triumph


Wonderboy Amine Chermiti scored twice but was then sent off as Etoile Sahel edged fellow Tunisian club CS Sfaxien 2-1 to lift the African Super Cup Saturday.

Chermiti, a slightly built 20-year-old striker voted footballer of the year in the North African country Friday, illustrated why he is so highly rated by scoring early in each half.

Likened to former Argentina superstar Diego Maradona by many Tunisian football supporters, Chermiti put African Champions League title holders Etoile ahead on five minutes.

The goalkeeper of African Confederation Cup title holders Sfaxien failed to hold a shot and Chermiti reacted quickest to fire the loose ball into the net at the 60,000-seat national stadium on the outskirts of the capital Tunis.

Sfaxien, two-goal losers to Etoile in the national championship this season, overcame the early setback and drew level after 28 minutes through Ghana-born Opoku Agyemang, who impressed as an attacking spearhead.

But two minutes into the second half Chermiti defied his lack of height by outjumping two defenders to power a Mehdi Meriah corner into the roof of the net and put Etoile ahead again.

Agyemang inspired a Sfaxien recovery with several dangerous raids into Sahel territory only to be thwarted by an Abdelkarim Nafkha-led barricade and the midfielder came close to scoring with a late thunderbolt.

Chermiti, who has been linked with French, German, Italian and Swiss clubs, fouled his Sfaxien 'minder' two minutes into stoppage time and was shown a red card.

It was the second Super Cup success for Etoile from the Mediterranean resort of Sousse with the other coming 10 years ago when they pipped Raja Casablanca after a penalty shootout in Morocco.

And with eight African titles, Etoile are just one behind second-placed Zamalek of Egypt among the most successful clubs. Cairo giants Al-Ahly top the list with 12 successes, including three in the Super Cup.

The Moroccans of Maghreb Fès, winners of last season's Confederations Cup won today the 2012 edition of CAF's Super Cup beating on a penalty shoot out the African club champions Esperance Tunis, who were practically playing home at Radès in Tunisia.

The Moroccan side opened the score at 20' by Bourezzouk but the Tunisians managed a very late equaliser at 90'+10' by Chemmam. After a goalless 30' extra time Maghreb Fès won the penalty shoot out 4-3 and lifted the trophy. This was only the second time that a Moroccan side won this trophy - Raja Casablanca did it in 2000.
