21 April 2016, 08:30

Lagos - Enyimba International Football Club of Aba on Wednesday night in Sousse, Tunisia squeezed through into the group stage of the 2016 CAF Champions League after a 4-3 win on penalty kicks.

In the second leg match of their final qualification round fixture in the competition, the two-time African champions lost 3-0 to hosts Etoile Sportive du Sahel.

The match saw Enyimba, 3-0 winners in the first leg in Port Harcourt over a week ago, failing to hold on after conceding only a goal in the first half.

Hamza Lahmar had given the hosts a first half lead, before Brazilian player Diogo Acosta scored twice midway into the second half to take the match to extra time.

Extra time play yielded no goal and, after a 3-3 aggregate over two legs, the penalty kicks shootout was applied with Enyimba scoring four times and conceding thrice.

Enyimba will now join seven others in the May 24 draw to know which group they are in the money-spinning phase of the competition.
