#CAFCC: Enyimba drop to third in group after defeat at Williamsville


Enyimba, Nigeria’s representatives at the CAF Confederation Cup, were beaten 2-0 at Williamsville Athletic Club in a Group C clash on Sunday.

The defeat, courtesy of a goal in each half from N’da Jean-Willy and Guy Serge Cdric Yameogo at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium, saw the Aba club drop from top of the group to third spot.

Enyimba picked up a win in their last game in Port-Harcourt which took them to the group summit, but were condemned to a second group defeat by a dominant Williamsville.
