Enyimba International’s 2016 CAF Champions League campaign ended on a high in Port Harcourt yesterday with a 3-1 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa.
At a packed Dokie Amiesimaka Stadium, Uche John opened scores in the 26th minute through a stunning free kick before Mfon Udoh struck a brace in the 45th and 50th minutes

A goal shortly after the break from France-born Chadian international Morgan Betorangal proved to be the winner for Bejaia.
It was only the Algerian side’s second goal in the six matches of the group phase.
The first match between the two sides ended 0-0 in Ghana allowing the North Africans to jump from third to second in the standings.
