Enyimba Has Been Eliminated From CAF Confederation Cup

Enyimba Football Club have crashed out of the 2020/21 CAF Confederation Cup as they were beaten by the Pyramids of Egypt.

The Nigeria Premier league side failed to overturn the 4-1 goal deficits in the first leg away in Cairo.

Enyimba were dumped out of the competition at the quarterfinals stage on a 5-2 aggregate after the People’s Elephants could only salvage a 1-1 draw in the second leg at the Aba International Stadium on Sunday.

Ibrahim Adel, the first leg brace scorer, got the visitors in front in the 32nd minute of play.

Anayo Iwuala, the Super Eagles winger, who was absent in the first leg due to suspension, however, levelled the scoreline for the home side eight minutes after Pyramids scored.

The Fatai Osho boys dream of being the first NPFL club to win the CAF Confederation Cup was shattered by Rodolfo Arruabarrena’s wards after the encounter ended in a draw.
