Advantage Mido (just) in the battle of the Egyptians
A frustrating weekend for Africans in the English Premiership this week with none of them troubling the scorers. In the battle of the Egyptians at the JJB Stadium, Middlesbrough's Mido got one up on Wigan's Amr Zaki as 'brough won 1-0. Despite neither scoring, Zaki impressed again, continuing the form that has led to him being compared to Alan Shearer. Everton's Yakubu also had a frustrating weekend in front of goal, missing several chances in their 2-2 draw with struggling Newcastle and although Chelsea won 2-0, Salomon Kalou had a late overhead kick disallowed for offside. No African scorers in the English Championship either this weekend, hopefully we'll see African scorers in a couple of weeks after the international break.
