ABUJA — Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt are out of the maiden CAF Women’s Champions League in Egypt, after losing 0-1 to Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa on Tuesday.
A first-half goal by Zanele Nhlapho in the 17th minute sealed the fate for the Nigerians at the El Salaam Stadium, Cairo.
The game saw the Port Harcourt side create lots of scoring chances it could not convert to goals.
However, a 53-minute goal by Maryann Ezenagu for coach Edwin Okon’s side was canceled by the referee.
With an earlier 0-3 loss to AS FAR of Morocco in the first game, even a win against Vihiga Queens of Kenya on Friday will only be consolatory but not enough to qualify them for the semi-finals of the tournament, due to head rules.
The South Africans are leading group B with six points, while the Kenyans and Moroccans are both on three points from three matches.
