Rivers United Snatch Last-Minute Win And Last-Eight Place

A last-minute  goal by Kazie Godswill gave Rivers United of Nigeria a 2-1 win over Dreams of Ghana on Sunday, and a place in the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-finals.

Dreams (plus four) won Group C on goal difference from Rivers (plus two) after both West African clubs accumulated 12 points from six matches.

Hoping to become the first Nigerian winners of a CAF competition since Enyimba lifted the 2005 Super Cup, Rivers fell behind after 40 minutes in Uyo when Abdul Aziz Issah scored for Dreams.

Echeta Deputy levelled on the hour mark and the Ghanaians were reduced to 10 men after 81 minutes when Seth Agyemang was sent off after being yellow-carded a second time.

Full-back Godswill then temporarily abandoned his defensive duties to score the goal that booked Rivers a place in the last-eight draw on a date to be announced.
