The Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL Club Owners Association has congratulated Enyimba FC of Aba on their victory against Ah Ahli Benghazi of Libya on winning their opening group game of the CAF Confederation Cup
Chairman of the association, Barr. Isaac Danladi, who stated this on Thursday in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital, described Enyimba’s 2-1 against the Libyans as a step in the right direction.
“It was a massive victory. Whenever you are playing against the Arab clubs, it’s like playing thirteen people because they always come with all sorts of tricks
“It’s a very physical game, but the commitment and experience of the Aba Elephants on the continent gave them an edge over their Arab visitors.”
He added that the NPFL Club Owners will continue to rally round the two-times CAF Champions league winners, in whatever capacity, to qualify from their tough group.
Austin Oladapo and Victor Mbaoma scored Enyimba’s goals while Imhamed scored Ahly’s consolation.
