Pillars advance after draw

Posted: 15 February 2009 Time: 15:59

Nigerian champions Kano Pillars advanced to the second round of the CAF Champions League with a 0-0 away to Chad's Elect Sport on Saturday.

The result means Pillars won the tie 2-0 on aggregate after a 2-0 first leg win in Kano a fortnight ago.

Pillars are joined in the next round by Zambia's Zesco United who beat Kenya champions Mathare United 3-1 away to go through 5-1 on aggregate.

There was good news for Zimbabwe too, as Monomatapa lost 2-1 to Zanzibar champions Miembeni but progressed 3-2 on aggregate, and will face South Africans Ajax Cape Town.

Ugandan club KCC also secured a place in the second round following a 2-0 victory over Ferroviario Maputo of Mozambique, who entered the return match defending a one-goal advantage established two weeks ago. KCC qualified 3-2 on aggregate and their next opponents are likely to be SuperSport United of South Africa, who hold a 3-0 lead over Curepipe Starlight ahead of their match in Mauritius on Sunday.

Nigeria's other representatives Heartland, take a 4-0 advantage to Sierra Leone to face the Black Stars and will be confident of progress.

If Bosso will not resign and the NFF will not fire him, then someone should tell the MEND to kidnap him and his assistant until after the WYC in Egypt.

Billion, you make me laugh wella wella. Another possibility is for him to organise a friendly match in Lagos and after the match, the Lagos fans lynch him.

It is still unbelieveable that Bosso is still on board. What this means is that the NFF, itself lack the capacity to lead and direct football in a country like Nigeria. I think, they all should be given a very tough time.Yes, since they think they are bigger than Nigerians and that the emotion of Nigerians should be trampled under foot. They are all a bunch of Fools. We must do something to show them they are not bigger than Nigerians, even with their stolen millions of money.
