The hope of Nigeria’s representative in the Confederation Cup Remo Stars to progress to the next round of the competition has been dashed.
The ‘Sky Blue Boys’ proved the bookmakers wrong last weekend by playing out a 1-1 draw against the Moroccan giant AS FAR.
The Nigeria side played host to the second leg on Sunday at its home ground in Ikenne but their hope of progressing was dashed after they lost 0-1.
They missed numerous scoring chances in the first half and they were out to curtail the attacking threats of the away side to end the half in a goalless.
Cameroonian international Joseph scored the winning goal in the 57th minute and ended the hopes of Remo Stars reaching the next round.
With the away win, the Moroccan side moved into the next round 2-1 on the aggregate
