Enyimba have last chance to salvage disappointing year for Nigeria


The People’s Elephant are arguably the last surviving chance for Nigerian football to salvage a disappointing year

Enyimba face Raja Casablanca away from home in the second leg of their Caf Confederation Cup semi-final on Wednesday, where they represent Nigeria’s last standing hope to salvage a disappointing year.

As has been the case throughout the People’s Elephant’s continental campaign this season—at least since the group stage—their success in Africa has been about more than just their own fortunes.

Ostensibly, the fortunes of the NPFL’s other teams have been bound up in their own, with Enyimba—the last Nigerian team standing in Caf competitions—responsible for boosting the nation’s ranking points.
