    The way you beat your opponents at the preliminary stage of the CAF CL and still got bundled out ehn kwa….LMAooo. Nna just collect ya $1m participation fee and return home.

    Enyimba was never supposed to be in this competition in the first place. Enyimba does not currently belong to the class of 8 of the most elite clubs on the African continent.

  • Loll with this rubbish you guys are playing? Kick and follow self better this trash and you 2-0 and 3-0on aggregate already.

  • Eyimba have been really unfortunate in this encounter.

    The first goal came before they could settle into the tie with the second coming off an unfortunate rebound that fell kindly to Wydad striker. The third was simply unexplainable as Eyimba defenders did everything possible to prevent the cross and connection for the goal.

    One has to applaud their determination to stay relevant in the game but it will take more than a miracle for them to claw their way back into the tie.

    I hope they will use the participation money to buy good players from Ghana, Senegal, Ivory coast and other places. They should avoid Nigerian league players. Those are washed up players. With the way they are playing, CAF may not invite them next year.

    I will be seriously crossed with CAF if they still allow Nigeria to present 4 clubsides in continental competitions next year.

    What the hell is this brand of football Enyimba is playing….??? The supposed Champions of the Nigerian League….?? That league must really be a substandard one.

    What has Finidi been coaching in the past 2 years….?? Can anybody explain to us what style of football Enyimba is playing…??? Cos I really cant see any.
