One of Nigeria’s representatives in this year’s CAF Confederation Cup competition, Rivers United, were in mercurial form, yesterday, when they thrashed visiting Al NASR 5-0 in the first leg of their group stage qualifying tie.

The Rivers boys, who dropped down to the Confederation Cup from the more prestigious Champions League after losing 6-0 to Wydad Casablanca in the last qualifying round, were in no mood for another disappoint as they swooped on the visitors right from kick off.

Duru converted another penalty kick in the 64th minute before Malachi Ohawume made it 5-0 for the NPFL champions in the 72nd minute with powerful shot.

Rivers United are now…
