Nigeria’s representative at the maiden edition of the CAF Women’s Champions League, Rivers Angels’ hopes of making it in the competition has been dashed.
The girls lost their second Group B match in Cairo, Egypt against South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns 1-nil on Tuesday.
Rivers Angels needed nothing but a win to retain hope of progressing into the semi-finals after suffering defeat in their opener against ASFAR FC of Morocco on Saturday
The victory has thrown Group B wide open as both ASFAR and Vihiga have 3 points each and they both must win their last group matches to sail through.
Rivers Angels would need to do the unthinkable by beating Vihiga Queens by at least 6 goals without conceding, hoping that Sundowns would do them a favour by beating Vihiga Queens to nurse any hope of remaining in the competition.
As it stands, Mamelodi Sundowns have qualified for the semi-finals with 6-point from 2 matches. They need only a draw to confirm their top position on the log. On the other hand, ASFAR FC and Vihiga Queens have 3 points apiece while Rivers Angels bring the rear with zero points.
