CAFCC: Eguma Labels Rivers United Vs KCCA ‘Do Or Die’ Clash


By Johnny Edward:


 Rivers United Technical Manager, Stanley Eguma, has stated in clear terms that Tuesday's CAF Confederations Cup match against Ugandan league champions KCCA is a 'do or die' for The Pride of Rivers, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Eguma's side are rocked bottom in the group with three points from three games, but a win for the Pride of Rivers against  KCCA will put their campaign back on track while a defeat or a draw may end their dreams of a berth in the next round.

Rivers United lost 2-1 in the reverse fixture at the Phillip Omondi Stadium in Kampala on June 3.

"It's a big game in the continent, and we know the task ahead. It's like a do or die affair for us," Eguma began in a chat with Completesportsnigeria.com.


"We know the strength of our opponent on Tuesday, and we need to be at our best to get the maximum points and  be in contention to qualification for the next round.

"Our plans is to win and I think we are on course."

  • To be absolutely blunt, these guys are simply not good, or at best, average. I watched them play struggle to beat SFaxien 1-0 in PH and beaten 2-1 bya Ugnadan team. I couldn’t believe I was watching a Nigerian clubside, Very disgraceful, no skills plays (except the goalkeeper who’s a bit ok). Only Kano Pillars and Enyimba have a slight flair of a Nigerian team; and I doubt even the current squads still have it.
    I don’t think these guys will go far. Just don’t watch them on Supersport tomorow or try going to the stadium in PH to see them. I mean, a Ugandan team beat them. UGANDAAA!!! Maybe it’s the way they even ‘played’ that was so annoying. Very disjointed, disgraceful seconday school-style game. I felt shamed the Ugandan spectators would see them as a ‘Nigerian team.’ Bad advertisement for Nigerian football, which makes southern African teams (esp SA) gain confidence when playing Nigeria. It was like watching a clubside from Lesotho or Djibouti.
