CONFEDERATION CUP: OLISEMA’S LONE STRIKE STOPS RIVERS UTD

Written by on February 15, 2021

 IT IS STILL ALL TO PLAY FOR IN THE RETURN LEG OF THE CAF CONFEDERATION CUP PLAYOFFS IN PORT HARCOURT AFTER 10 MAN ENYIMBA WERE ONLY ABLE TO WIN 1-0 AGAINST RIVERS UNITED IN THE FIRST LEG TIE  PLAYED IN ABA YESTERDAY.

THE DOWNPOUR IN ABA INITIALLY THREATENED TO FORCE THE GAME TO BE RESCHEDULED AS EARLY AS THE NINTH MINUTE WHEN THE MATCH OFFICIALS SUSPENDED THE GAME BUT THE WEATHER IMPROVED LATER AND THE GAME WAS RESTARTED.

ENYIMBA DOMINATED THE GAME BUT WERE UNDONE BY THE GOOD REFLEX SAVES OF THEIR FORMER GOALKEEPER, THEOPHILUS AFELOKHAI, AND POOR MARKSMANSHIP FROM THEIR STRIKERS.

THE PEOPLE’S ELEPHANT LATER SHOT AHEAD IN THE 59TH  MINUTE THROUGH CYRIL OLISEMA WHO MANAGED TO HIT THE TARGET. THEY WERE UNABLE TO ADD MORE WITH THE SENDING OFF OF TOSIN OMOYELE WITH A FEW MINUTES TO THE END OF THE ENCOUNTER ENSURING THAT RIVERS UNITED WILL STILL FANCY THEIR CHANCES IN THE SECOND LEG THIS WEEKEND IN PORT HARCOURT.
