It was a sweet victory for Nigeria’s only survivo, Enyimba international of Aba in this year’s CAF competition on Sunday as they pummeled their opponents Rayon Sports of Rwanda 5-1, on aggregate.
The first leg of the quarter final of the CAF Confederation Cup in Kigali last week ended goalless which gave the two a glimpse of hope ahead of the second leg.
But it was the People’s Elephant who made use of the home advantage and made Rayon Sports pay handsomely for failing to their chance in Kigali.
It was former Youth International Stanley Dimgba, who opened the floodgates of goals as early as 12th minute of the game but Rayon responded quickly in the 19th minute through Caleb Bimenyimana.
Flying Eagles captain Ikouwem Udoh made it 2-1 in favour of Enyimba in the 29th minute and ended the first half in favour of the home team.
The second stanza resumed with former African Champions, Enyimba dominating the play and it paid off in the 47th minute as Sunday Adetunji made it 3-1.
Joseph Osadiaye made it 4-1 in the 60th minute of the game, before Isiaka Oladuntoye scored the 5th goal in the 78th minute to make the day a perfect day for Enyimba.
The victory advanced Enyimba into the last four of the competition for the first time in their history.
The People Elephants will play Raja Casablanca of Morocco in the last four.
