    Setif is already leading ahly benghazi and has moved to 2nd in the group.
    Enyimba is currently bottom and needs even if its a 1/2 – 0 win tonight against a pirates team that is so far unbeaten in this competition.

    Game on…!

    The commentator is so pissed off at Enyimba…..LMAO. Like how on earth can you be needing just 1 goal to qualify, playing vs a team with nothing at stake and still be playing aimlessly like this…?! Lolz

  • JimmyBall 3 years ago

    NPFL coaches have outdated coaching methods and philosophies. Their technical and tactical inputs are just whack…

      Ah….Wahlahi this is REAL HEART ATTACK FOOTBALL….!!!

    • Coachie 3 years ago

      Saw the game as well. I think i agree with you guys, our local coaches really need to up their game. Emyimba should have finished this game with a tactical coach on their bench. Abi wetin be the essence of possession without any meaningful result or moments of danger in the opponent’s box. Thank God they stepped it up with long balls into Pirates’ area in the last 6mins and the goal came

      • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

        At a point , the commentator started doing the coaching o….LMAO. They cannot keep playing kak footy and be winning 1-0, 2-1 at home and then going away to play another round of aimless football and reach final o. Something has to change in this team.
        Ey Jesus….my BP is sky high now…! Wetin football nor go do me for this life.

    … funny how just only a trickle of us are still awake. Stayed up late after Man city vs PSG to watch Enyimba go to war and boy… was it not worth it? Iwuala “Rolling” Anayo… lol, the enforcer… kudos to the scorer “Chinedu” and thumbsup to the team for a gritty game to the wire… Going forward they should improve on their shooting and purposefulness around the opponent 18 yard and goal area… they need to play with this sort of coordination at away venues also and they will have a better chance of finishing their business! Good night mates… Make I retire!

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Uncle, which coordination are you talking about…?? The one that didnt test the Opponents goalkeeper for 95 mins…???

      • JimmyBall 3 years ago

        Atleast they were able to string 3 to 4 passes well unlike the previous game against Al Ahly Benghazi… They can do better… apologies for the typo on the scorer… It’s “Olisema” and not “Chinedu”…

    • Coachie 3 years ago

      Baba, there was no coordination, every move started well from the back but ended just before the opponents vital area which is the main place where you need to create dangers to win games
