Enyimba International Captain, Mfon Udoh says the People’s Elephant are battle ready to tackle Rayon Sports club of Rwanda in the first leg of the CAF Confederations Cup quarter-final at the Stade Nyamirambo.
Enyimba qualified for the second round courtesy of a last-gasp winner from Wasiu Alalade at the Aba Stadium but Mfon Udoh is confident that his team will get the better of Rayon Sports.
“There is no second chance at this stage because it’s the knockout stage. The good thing is that we won’t underrate any team,” Udoh stated in an interview with CAF’s website.
“All the teams in the quarterfinals are very strong and we don’t expect Rayon Sport to give us an easy passage. We must be ready for tough games over the two legs (home and away).
No Nigerian team has ever won the CAF Confederations Cup, Udoh is hopeful Enyimba can make history
” It is our dream to make history as the first Nigerian team to win the CAF Confederation Cup, and we are working hard so that we can be the set of players that achieve this dream with Enyimba,” he added.
“The fact that we are the only surviving Nigerian club in this year’s continental club championship speaks well about us.
” We know we have to work extremely hard from this stage of the competition. It will be tough starting from the quarter because it is a knockout stage.”
The match is scheduled to hold on Sunday
