Nigeria's Enyimba International FC of Aba have crashed out of this year's CAF Champions League, despite 2-1 win against visiting Al-Merrikh  of Sudan who moved to the money spining group stage of the Africa elite clubs competition on 4-2 aggregate.

Striker , Victor Mbaoma brace in the match was not enough to the stop the Sudanese giants in the return leg of the second round encounter held on Wednesday at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba.

The visitors took an early lead in the eighth minute  of  the tension soaked match through ,Maki before Mbaoma drew level in the 15th minute and later scored the second goal from the penalty spot in the 50th minute for the People's Elephants.

The Sudanese ensured that they didn't allow additional goals from their Nigerian opponents, as they defended their 3-0 first leg advantage.

With the result, Enyimba are now dropped to the second tier, CAF Confederation Cup, to be drawn in the next round of matches.
