Orlando Pirates were knocked out of CAF Champions League by Zambia’s Green Eagles after failing to overturn a 1-0 first-leg defeat away,managing a 1-1 result in the return leg.
Captain Happy Jele ended the goal-drought by heading home from close range in the 59th minute and hardly a minute later Eagles midfielder Amity Shamende scored the equaliser.
