These may well be the most comical conditions we have ever seen a match take place in.

Egyptian side Zamalek beat Nigerian outfit Enyimba FC 1-0 in the African Champions League this evening, but it is amazing that a goal was actually scored give how atrocious the surface was.

Nigeria has obviously been hit with heavy rainfall today, because as this clip shows, the players were almost wading around in knee-high floods.

Surely the game should have been postponed?
