CAFCC: River United one foot in semis after win against holders

Tight Race for NPFL Coach of the Month

Nigeria’s sole representatives in CAF Confederation Cup, River United, are now close to making history after a 1-0 narrow victory over defending champions, USM Alger.

Poised for an uphill task against an Algerian opposition, the Pride of Rivers utilised the home advantage.

Augustine Okejepha scored the all important goal, ten minutes into the first half, that later turned into the match day winner.

Following the rest, Eguma’s side shift focus to the return leg, slated next week on 7th April, 2024.

Their aspirations keep high as they target to emulate the 2022-2023 campaign where they were eliminated at the same phase.

It should be noted that the winner here faces the victor of the North African clash between Abu Salim of Libya or Renaissance Berkane from Morocco in the semis.
