CAF Confederation Cup: Enyimba lose 4-1 away in Egypt.May 16, 2021
Enyimba Football Club are now in a difficult position in their quest to progress to the next phase in the CAF Confederation Cup as the People’s Elephant were hammered 4-1 by Egyptian side Pyramids in the first leg of their quarter-final tie on Sunday at the Air Defence Stadium, Cairo.
The country’s flag bearers suffered the heavy defeat despite scoring a goal in the first minute on Sunday’s tie.
Coach Fatai Osho’s men made a promising start when Victor Mbaoma shot them into the lead a few seconds after the blast of the whistle.
Unfortunately, instead of building on that bright start, Enyimba fell like a pack of cards afterward against their highly tactical opponents.
Ramadan Sobhi got the equaliser for Pyramids in the 15th minute and the first half ended 1-1.
However, things went south for Enyimba in the second half where they conceded three cheeky goals. Abdallah El-Saed was on target four minutes into the second half before Ibrahim Adel found the back of the net in the 58th and 66th minutes.
The 4-1 win has given the Pyramids a massive advantage heading into the second leg in Aba.
Enyimba football club is the most successful club in Nigeria. They have won Caf champions league two times. Which no club in Nigeria have won. Caf confederation cup is one of trophy they to win.
As it stand now they need miracle to overturn today’ s result.
