Enyimba down Sundowns in Port Harcourt

Nigeria’s CAF Champions Enyimba has register a win in their final CAF Champions League, Group B match when they beat Mamelodi Sundowns three goals to one yesterday in Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.

A brace courtesy of Mfon Udoh and a well struck free kick by Uche John ensured Paul Aipogun’s side restored their pride in the competition.

Although the South Africans went to Nigeria as favourites, they failed to win but managed to find the back of the net through Percy Tau in the first half.

Despite the loss, the Brazilians still top the group with nine points from three wins and will now play in the knockout stages as group winners.

Although the game started on a low note on the muddy surface due to rain, it was the hosts who threatened as early as the first five minutes.

The rain continued to fall and the visitors failed to play their normal passing game, allowing the hosts to walk away with the full three points.

Following the win, Aipogun’s side remain rooted at the bottom of the group with three points and will miss the chance to play in the semi-finals.
