Nigeria Professional Football League reigning Champions, Enyimba FC have stepped down  to the Caf Confederation Cup on the back of their 1-0 away defeat against AL Hilal in Omdurman on Sunday in the Caf champions league playoffs.

The People’s Elephant could only record a barren draw  from the first leg in Aba a fortnight ago  against the Sudanese side.

While coach Usman Abd’Allah’s men were optimistic they could get the needed result in Omdurman to still pull through, a solitary strike in the second half by the hosts ended their aspirations of a possible third Champions League triumph this season.

Enyimba FC will now need to navigate past the playoffs to make it to the group stage in the second-tier club competition.
