Enyimba FC drop to CAF Confederation Cup after Al Hilal defeat

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.
