CAF CL: Enyimba crash out

Enyimba's struggle in the CAF Champions League this season has come to an end as early as the preliminary stage.

After a goalless first leg in Aba, the Nigerian club stumbled to a 1-0 defeat in the hands of Sudan’s Al –Hilal in Omdurman on Sunday.

The eight-time Nigeria champions adopted a defensive strategy going into the game and probably hoped for goal from break-away moves or possible anticipating another goalless outing that would have taken the game into penalty shootout.

But an early goal by Al Hilal solved the equation and saw the Sudanese club advance to the group stage.
