Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Enyimba, ended their final group game in the 2015/16 CAF Champions League with a win over group leader, Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa.
Mfon Udoh scored a brace on the night to take his goal tally in the competition to nine as the People’s Elephants rumped to a 3 – 1 victory over Sundowns in Port Harcourt.
Enyimba who were already out of the tournament played for pride and got on the front foot from the blast of the whistle as they took the game to their South African opponent who rested a number of their star players having booked a place in the next round of the competition.
Two goals in the first half; sandwiched by a leveler from the visitors shot the People’s Elephant into the lead in the first half. Uche John and Udoh were the goal scorers.
Udoh was not done for the night, however, as he returned after the break with his second goal, this time from the penalty spot to wrap up an encounter played under very wet conditions
