Rivers dry up in Tanzania!



Rivers United’s hope of flowing over the huge mountain posed by Tanzania’s Young Africans (Yanga) FC came to nothing on Sunday as they struggled in vain in the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final match that ended goalless.

No thanks to Rivers United’s two-goal deficit at home in the first leg that posed an insurmountable hurdle for them.

At the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Rivers looked unlikely to get a positive result. They had only four shots in goal area as against the 12 by the Tanzanians.

Even then, none of the shots were on target, but the Tanzanians at least had two in the drab match that was initially disrupted after 24 minutes by black out that last 20 minutes.

Young African have now become the first ever Tanzanian side to get to the semi-finals of a CAF competition.
