'95th minute magic' - Nigerians celebrate Enyimba as South Africans slam 'weak' Orlando Pirates

Taiye Taiwo @Tayo_taiwo

A nervy finish in Aba on Wednesday night saw the Nigerian giants advance into the quarter-finals of the Caf tournament with a late winning goal
It was mixed feelings for Nigerians and South Africans as Enyimba defeated Orlando Pirates 1-0 in the final Group A match in the Caf Confederation Cup.

Fatai Osho’s men started Wednesday’s encounter in search of a win to confirm their place in the knockout stage but they found it difficult to break their South African visitors until the 95th minute.

Cyril Olisemah tapped in a late match-winning goal that fired the Nigeria Professional Football League giants to the top of Group A with nine points after six matches.

Despite the loss in Aba, Orlando Pirates qualified for the next round as the second-best team in the group with nine points after the same number of games.

In their reactions to the result, South Africans were disappointed to see the Buccaneers drop points at the Enyimba International Stadium while Nigerians are praising the resilience shown by Fatai Osho’s men.

Highlights.

The match began at 10pm Nigerian time because both matches had to be played at the same time and allowance was given for muslim players to break their fast before the games began.

Enyimba were bottom of the table at some point yesterday, but they had gone to the top by the end of the match.

Before the game at Aba, one would be needing a "Four Figure Table" and a brand new Casio calculator to know if Enyimba stands a chance of advancing to the next round.


I remember the time of Coach Okey Emordi with a very funny looking mustache, way back 2003, the People's Elephant do qualify from their group with ease even when they're paired with the stubborn North African clubs, you won't be needing a calculator then... Now, the People's Elephant are a shadow of themselves.


Back then, you'll be proud to identify with Enyimba and Dolphins Fc doing the country proud.

Congratulations to Enyimba Fc, I pray they advance to the final.

Ikpeazu must show the team support in the knockout stage, if not, this effort will amount to nothing.

I think Kadiri Ikhana was the coach in 2003 and Okey Emordi was the coach in 2004

I stopped watching the game at the 90th thinking it was all over.

It was amazing that we could host a match at 10pm.

Congratulations Enyimba

Yeah, you're right, but the People's Elephant flourish under Okey Emordi... At one point, Kadiri Ikhana was having this secret selection tussle with the Chairman of the club then.

Good memories of the People's Elephant.

Yeah, but they flourished under both coaches. Ikhana gave them their first African Champions Cup and Emordi gave them their second.

My precious club cool

The only Football Club in Nigeria wink

Let’s go for the Cup. cool

Up Enyi!

Tomorrow some shameful tribal bigots will come here to lie that Igbos don’t tolerate competition in their region. But below is Enyimba of Aba pre match line up, there are almost as much Yorubas as Igbos.
Funny thing is we don’t even take notice of all these things till these BMC idiots claim we are not accommodating.
All the players in this Enyimba team is equally loved, but the captain, Austin Oladapo is arguably most loved in Aba, Abia state.

Lol, but Okey Emordi tactical nous was second to none... He reminds me of how Arsené Wenger handled the Invincibles.

Ikhana on the other hand was not given the "free hand" by the chairman while in charge.


I have forgotten the name of that man sef. cheesy

Felix Anyansi-Agwu.

You are right. Both Governor Orji Uzor Kalu and Felix Anyansi-Agwu were on Ikhana's case. If you remember, Governor Kalu actually sat on the bench during the first Champions League final. People asked him about it afterwards and he said that he was listed as a member of Enyimba's technical crew.

Thanks for refreshing my memory...


So many see it as been patriotic on the side of OUK, but dude was there to cut the Coach to size...

From the selection of goalkeeper, (A fight of who will be number 1) Vincent Enyeama and Dele Aiyenugba, to who gets to wear the captains armband.

Meanwhile, fans of Setif are very angry. They believe that Orlando Pirates sold the match to Enyimba and now their team has failed to qualify.
