Enyimba beat Raja

Enyimba beat Raja Casablanca in CAF Champions League

Posted: 14 August 2011 Time: 08:28 pm

Enyimba held on to CAF Champions League Group A top spot with a 2-0 win over Raja Casablanca on Sunday in Aba. 

Uche Kalu scored one and set up Chidozie Johnson for the other as two first half goals proved enough to secure seven points from three games.

Kalu needed just nine minutes to shoot Enyimba in front.

With 27 minutes played, he then showed great hold up play inside the nix before laying up for skipper Johnson to drive home from just inside the box.

Sudan's Al Hilal can go level with Enyimba if they beat Cameroon's Cotonsport later on Sunday.

I watched the match live in Aba,
it seems lyk the glory days are coming back really,
if they can get synthetic pitch, we will be watching great football here, good pitch is what is needed. Mehn see great naija football, not much of hoofing the ball up.
Anyways, good result for the Aba millionaires in addition to good game.

MIND NOT MY TYPO, GET MY MSG.

no offence fellow african. if enyimba fail to win it this year, they wont win it in the near future. beware, pirates will dominate africa from next year. the way they play, if u can watch them just once, u will agree with me that they should relocate to the la liga. i dont see competition in africa and the PSL.

JUST VOICING MY OWN FACTS, IF OFFENDED MY APOLOGIES

I see some individualistic play in the Nigerian attack...if we intend to win this match it has to be through team play all thses guys chasing top scorer will destroy this game if they continue.
