Nigeria’s representative at the 2021/2022 CAF Confederation Cup, Enyimba International FC on Sunday booked a place in the play-off of the second continental league after it defeated Diambers FC in Aba, www.bestchoicesports.com.ng can report.
The People’s Elephant thrashed the visiting Senegalese side 3-0 to progress to the play-off on 4-0 aggregate after they recorded a 1-0 away win in Dakar, Senegal a week ago
Goals from Tosin Omoyele, Victor Mbaoma and Samuel propelled the the former Champions League champions past the Senegalese side at the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba.
The Nigeria Professional Football League giants had secured a 1-0 away win courtesy of Cyril Olisema’s 86th-minute penalty at the Stade Lat-Dior, Thies.
Buoyed by that result, Enyimba started the game on a bright note, and it took them less than a minute to take the lead through Omoyele.
Goal reports that although the hosts dominated ball possession, they were unable to get more goals as they were wasteful in front of goals.
Nevertheless, they doubled their advantage on the half hour mark through Mbaoma who profited from the visitors’ shambolic defending.
Nothing changed in the second half as the visitors laboured in vain to assert their authority in the keenly contested encounter.
Three minutes from full time, Diambars got reduced to 10 men as Bacary Sane was given the marching orders for dangerous play.
Profiting from that numerical advantage, Finidi George’s men had time to make it three goals through Kalu in the 90th minute.
With this, Enyimba are through having won 4-0 on aggregate and will now await their next opponents in the coming days.
