Rangers fumble in Libreville, lose first-leg tie against AS Pelican


AS Pelican threw a spanner in the wheels of the Rangers’ Confederation Cup campaign, handing the NPFL side a 2-1 first-leg first round defeat in Libreville.

The home side scored two first-half goals to open a comfortable lead before Nnamdi Egbujuo reduced the deficit.


Rangers couldn’t find the a way back and left the Stade Augustin Monédan de Sibang needing a good performance in the return-leg to reach the group stage of the competition.



The 1977 winners will host AS Pelican in the second-leg on September 29 at ‘The Cathedral’, Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium, Enugu.
