One of Nigeria’s representatives in the CAF Confederation Cup, Wikki Tourists, on Sunday evening crashed out of the second tier continental club tournament in front of home fans.

Wikki went into the game with a plan of overturning the 2-0 deficit they suffered in the hands of their opponents, RSLAF FC of Sierra Leone in the first leg.

In game marked with intent from both sides, Wikki Tourists had themselves to blame when they were handed a penalty in the first half, a chance which was fluffed only to make amends when the chance came again in the second half which was tucked in this time.

Despite having a one man advantage over the visiting Sierra Leoneans, Wikki could not register another goal which could have at least, taken the game into extra time and penalties subsequently.

They therefore crashed out 1-2 on aggregate while RSLAF FC will now face Djoliba of Mali in the second round of preliminaries.
