Cameroonian side Cotonsport beat South African side Santos 4-0 in the Confederation Cup to go top of Group B – at least temporarily. With Ghana’s Hearts Of Oak not playing until Sunday, Cotonsport took full advatage and punished the South Africans with two goals in each half.
Ahmadou Ngomna got them under way on 18 minutes.
Following a foul in the area, Cotonsport had a penalty – which was saved by the Santos goalkeeper – but Ngomna headed in from the resulting corner.
Nigerian Bitrus Minufu then doubled the Cameroonian’s lead on 39 minutes, and Allaman Francois Dikoume put the game beyond doubt on the hour mark.
Hamadou Soussia finished things off nine minutes later.
Hearts of Oak will play away at Sable Batie tomorrow.
Meanwhile in Group A, Enugu Rangers also got a 4-0 win, crushing El-Hilal of Sudan.
Ebenezer Ojo’s 4th minute effort got them off to a flying start – and just four minutes later, Igho Otegheri had made it 2-0.
Okey Enyiagu’s 35th-minute then got a third for the Nigerians which demoralised the Sudanese.
And it was all over shortly after half-time, when Emeka Emedosi netted the fourth on 49 minutes.
