Enyimba Bow Out Of CAF Champions League

Enyimba Bow Out Of CAF Champions League

Enyimba crashed out of the CAF Champions League after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Libya’s Al Ahly Benghazi in Aba on Sunday.

The Nigeria Professional Football League champions lost 4-3 on aggregate.

Finidi George’s dominated the game but were let down by their poor marksmanship.

The visitors sat back and put up a spirited display to thwart Enyimba’s attack.

The home fans were left disappointed at the end as a 1-0 win would have seen Enyimba scale through to the second round.

The People’s Elephant will now shift attention to their preparations for the new NPFL season.

Nigeria’s other representative in the CAF Champions League Remo Stars are up against Ghanaian Premier League champions Medeama SC.

    Remo Stars just lost on penalties as well. I don’t know when our league will wake up because it’s now easier to loose than win on the continent.

    Lazy teams. The league should be cancelled. They are traders maqurading as footballers.

  • I have always maintained our calendar is not helping matters teams are yet to get cohesion in the domestic league they start continental matches with new players

  • The individuals that run our football are out of touch. Year in, year out the same comedy show.

      For the umpteenth time, Nigerian clubsides have crashed out of the CAF Champions League at the first hurdle. The reason Nigerian clubsides are messing up on the continent is down to one thing: poor coaching tactics. Nigerian coaches are still sticking with old-fashioned and outdated football tactics (though I know that CAF’s manipulations to keep Finidi George from Enyimba’s technical area also played a major part in their ouster). Coaches on other countries are going abroad to update and improve both their technical and tactical knowledge of the game, but Nigerian coaches are busy sticking to old tactics, yet they expect to get results at the continental stage. And the current NFF board don’t know how to play politics at the CAF headquarters, and that’s why these other countries will continue taking us for a ride. Even the CAFWCL will continue to elude Nigeria as long as their coaches refuse to reinvent themselves and their teams. This is why I hope that the rumor that NFF has fired Randy Waldrum as Super Falcons coach isn’t true. Trust me, a local coach wouldn’t have achieved success with the Super Falcons at the WWC the way Randy Waldrum did. The NFF bigwigs MUST allow Waldrum to continue for the Olympics. Changing him now could spell doom for the team in the Olympic qualifiers, especially as Cameroon and South Africa are lying in our qualifying path. A word is enough for the wise!

  • Yeye people, include 4,5,6,or as many home base!!!! Home base is better than this and better than.

    Emyimba bows out, Remo crash out and yet this Nff will still be shouting include home base every now and then.

    The sickness at that glass house is far worse than anything

    NFF berates our national coaches to graft home-based players into the Super Eagles. In truth it’s a crime to advance mediocrity in sports at the international level
