Ghanaian midfielder Farouk Mohammed has expressed disappointment following Enyimba FC’s failure to qualify for the Confederation Cup semi-finals after being kicked out by Pyramids FC in the quarter-finals.
Pyramids went to Nigeria with a major advantage after their showdown on the June 30 Stadium which ended with the Egyptian side’s 4-1 victory.
Enyimba started strong in the second leg, and tried to score an early goal to make their mission easier, but Ahmed El-Shennawy had a brilliant performance between the sticks.
“It has come to an End for Us in the #CAFCC….we are left with the League and we are going for it… Yes, we disappointed. But we not finished… The league title is still there for us and we are up for it..#upenyimba🔵⚪️🐘,” Farouk wrote on Facebook.
No team could score a winning goal, but the draw was more than enough for Pyramids to go one step closer to the title and qualify for the semi-finals.
In their journey to the final, Pyramids will be facing Raja Casablanca in the semi-finals, Raja earned their ticket to the semi-finals after a 4-0 victory against Orlando Pirates in the quarter-finals second leg in Morocco, after a 1-1 draw in South Africa.
Pyramids will host the first leg of the semi-finals in Egypt on June 20, and a week later the Blues will be facing their opponent in Morocco in the second leg.
