Nasarawa United FC’s chairman, Barrister Isaac Danladi has reiterated that his team is not in Senegal on sightseeing, as the Solid Miners prepares for a showdown with AS Academie Generation Foot in a CAF Confederation Cup first round, second leg encounter today.
“Certainly, it is going to be a tough game. Of course, we are not expecting anything less. We are battle ready. Our delegation has since settled down and training is going on smoothly,” he said.
Nasarawa United could only win the first leg 2-1 in Abuja, with goals from Tayo Fabiyi and Seun Sogbeso. Generation Foot played a very exciting game in Abuja and Nigerian ball fans remain apprehensive of the outcome of today’s encounter.
Nigeria’s representative in the CAF Champions League, Enyimba International will seek a clear win in today’s return leg match against Vipers FC of Uganda in Port Harcourt, if they must hit the second round of the lucrative champion’s league.
The People’s Elephants lost the first leg with a slim 1-0 margin in Kampala and a convincing victory today will ensure that they remain in the championship.
Enyimba’s chairman, Felix Anyansi Agwu has insisted that the Aba-based People’s Elephants have no choice but to beat Vipers today, even as the East Africans have warned that they are in Nigeria to ensure that the two-time champions league winners are eliminated from the competition.
