Sunshine Stars hit Libolo in comeback

Nigeria's Sunshine Stars made Recreativo do Libolo's first leg three-goal advantage count for nothing as they cruised into the next round of the Caf Champions League in style.

The Nigerians defeated their Angolan counterparts 3-0 in the return leg of the Round of 32 on Sunday at the Dipo Dina Stadium in Ijebu-Ode to progress on the away goal's rule after losing 1-4 a fortnight ago.

Izu Azuka opened score for Sunshine Stars with a long range effort before Godfrey Oboabona got the second when he converted from the spot with 10 minutes to the break.

The Angolans did nothing to hurt Sunshine Stars all afternoon and on 76 minutes, substitute Dele Olorundare nodded away Ibrahim Ajani's cross to make it three for the home team.

Sunshine Stars' head coach, Gbenga Ogunbote told that his team were always better than Recreativo do Libolo over the two legs.

"We were always the better side (than Libolo). Even in the first leg when they won 4-1 we played better and we were just unfortunate to concede four goals because we deserved a better scoreline in Angola.

"But today we have showed why we are a strong side despite being new in the (Caf) Champions League," Ogunbote told
