Rangers crash out of Confederation Cup



Rangers crash out of Confederation Cup

Nigeria Professional Football League side, Rangers International, have crashed out of the CAF Confederation Cup after a 3-0 defeat to Zesco United in Ndola, Zambia on Saturday.

The second leg defeat follows a first leg 2-2 draw at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium last week, as the Flying Antelopes now go out 5-2 on aggregate.

Zesco have now qualified for the group stage of the Confederation Cup.

John Chingandu scored the opener for the home side in the 25th minute and doubled about 13 minutes later.

Jesse Jackson Were made it 3-0 in the 63rd minute to send the Zambian champions to the continental second-tier competition.

Rangers, who earlier crashed out of the CAF Champions League, had in the first leg played last Sunday thrown away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 against Zesco – a result that led to the sacking of their former head coach Imama Amapakabo the following day by the club’s management.

As it stands, Nigeria’s only team left on the continent is Rivers United, and they will play host to Rwanda’s Rayons Sport in their first leg play-off clash in Port Harcourt this Sunday.
