DEFENSIVE BLUNDERS CAUSE ENYIMBA’S OUSTER FROM CAF CONFEDERATION CUP FINAL

DEFENSIVE BLUNDERS CAUSE ENYIMBA’S OUSTER FROM CAF CONFEDERATION CUP FINAL

Enyimba centre-back, Oladuntoye Isiaka gifted the opening goal of the second leg to Raja in first-half stoppage time and conceded a late own goal, leading to a 3-1 aggregate ouster of Enyimba in the Confederation Cup.


Maskman, Zakaria Hadraf rounds off Enyimba’s goalkeeper, Theophilus Afelokhai to score the opening goal.

The Nigerian tamely gave possession to Zakaria Hadraf, wearing a mask to protect a pre-match facial injury, and the Moroccan rounded goalkeeper Theophilus Afelokhai to score.

As an uneventful second half limped to full-time, Isiaka allowed a cross slide off his boot into the net on 88 minutes to give Raja a 2-0 second-leg advantage.

Enyimba pulled one goal back almost immediately as substitute Abdulrahaman Bashir rifled the ball past goalkeeper Anas Zniti.

It was the first goal conceded at home in the Confederation Cup by the Raja shot-stopper for 550 minutes.

Enyimba were left to rue several wasted first-half chances, notably when Chinedu Udeagha fired straight at Zniti from close range.
