Akwa United Crash Out Of CAFCC On Away Goals

By Johnny Edward:

Akwa United crashed out of the CAF Confederation Cup competition on the away goals rule on Wednesday despite defeating Al Hilal of Sudan 3-1 in the second leg of their play-off tie at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo.

The Promise Keepers lost out 3-3 on the away goals rule after the first leg ended 2-0 in Sudan.

AI-Hilal skipper Basheer stunned hosts Akwa United in the 28th minute, tapping in a rebound after goalkeeper Ojo Olorunleke had spilled a fierce shot.

Michael Ibe restored parity for the Promise Keepers in the final minute of the first half.

Four minutes into the second half, Ibe finished off Haggai Katoh’s delightful pass to make it 2-1 for Akwa United.

Home Eagles forward Gabriel Okechukwu came close in making it 3-1 for Akwa United but his free-kick was tipped away the Al Hilal goalkeeper.

Ibe completed his hat-trick in the 69th minute from the spot after Aniekeme was fouled in the box by an Al Hilal player.

Akwa United join Plateau United who also failed to advance to the group stage of the competition, while Enyimba FC of Aba qualified for the group stages on away goals.
