It is Pirates’ second appearance in the Confederation Cup final after facing Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel, whom they lost to.

After a 1-1 draw in South Africa, Pirates fell 1-0 to the North Africans in the second leg in Tunisia.

Meanwhile, it will be a home coming for Ndah who use to play inside the Godswill Akpabio Stadium during his time with Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Akwa United.

The 24-year-old spent two seasons at Akwa United from 2019 to 2021 and won the Nigerian league title with them.

He has represented Nigeria U23 at the 2019 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Also, he was part of the Eagles squad that featured at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

In 2004, the CAF Confederation Cup was founded as the merger of CAF Cup and African Cup Winners’ Cup.

Accra Hearts of Oak became the first club to win the cup in 2004. In 2013, CS Sfaxien became the first club to win three trophies after defeating TP Mazembe in the final.

Akin to the CAF Champions League since 21st century, the competition has also been dominated by North African sides, with 13 titles went to the region.

    I wonder why Salisu didn’t consider this lad in his list.
    I think he should have being listed ahead of one of the home based professionals,we need to see him more,he did well in Cameroon when called upon.
    One good thing about playing for super eagles is it puts you in the radar of European football,this lad needs to play in Europe to have a better chance of playing for super eagles

      Well said brotherman. I and I will always pray for hard working super Eagles players who work well to bring happiness to the fans. There is no point to criticize this guy as he is great. Nigeria will go places with this defender at the back. Heaven bless Ndah and all deserving Super Eagles players.
