Rivers United FC Secures Narrow Victory in CAF Confederation Clash

Nigeria’s Rivers United FC clinched a tight 1-0 win over USM Alger in the TotalEnergies CAF Confederation match held in Uyo on Sunday.

In a fiercely contested encounter at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, the home team emerged victorious with a solitary goal, scored by Okejepha Augustine in the eighth minute.

Despite dominating proceedings from the outset, Rivers United FC struggled to capitalize on their opportunities, missing several chances due to poor finishing.
