Bros, MFM lost at home and will be playing away. You know how that goes. Only if a miracle could occur.

Why has nobody completed the answer?
MFM did not make it to the next round.
Only Enyimba progressed to the next round of the CAF competition.

Like it or not our football locally is dead , we can no longer compete on the african club scene. It is sad because the clubs appear to be more organised now, but are being let down by their inability to retain any quality player that comes through their ranks.

Talented players are slipping through via the academy programs with the main motivation behind the programmes simply to make money foreign currency regardless of which country it is coming from. Hundreds of talented players are ending up in backwater leagues and country ,their prospects ruined by the haste for a fistful of dollars.

The clubs are left with scraps. Financially handicapped and unable to scour for talent outside of the country save for one or two they resign themselves to fate and faith.

We have also been downgraded in CAF competitions. From next year Nigeria can only field one club each in both competitions.

That is scandalous.
As Oloye said the player quality in the NPL has been receded by players going abroad and being scooped up by academies.

The NPL would benefit massively/would get attention if some of the foreign based pros came back home at the tail end of their careers (didn't Mobi Oparaku and Sani Kaita return to the NPL some years ago?).

I created a thread on CE warning that this would happen.

Seems nobody listened.

If Enyimba does well, we may be upgraded by the subsequent year.
