Rangers International Football Club beat Zamalek FC of Egypt 2-1 on Sunday, but failed to achieve the target of advancing to the group stage of the 2017 CAF Champions League.

In the return leg clash of their second round pairing in the competition, played at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu, the Nigerian side crashed out on a 3-5 aggregate, following another Nigerian side, Rivers United.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the hosts had a week earlier lost 1-4 to the Egyptian side in the first leg clash.

In this second leg tie, they needed a 3-0 win at least to advance to the group stage of the competition.

But things looked promising, even though a bit late, when Rangers got their first goal through Olusesi Tope in the 45th minute of the match.

However, they failed to build on that, and things got complicated when Bassem Morsi equalised in the 71st minute.

Rangers were only able to get another goal through a penalty kick by Aguda in the 89th minute of the match.

Another Nigerian team, Rivers United also crashed out on Saturday, losing 3-4 to Sudanese team El-Merriekh.

Both Rangers and Rivers United will now play for honours in the CAF Confederation Cup.
