Enyimba head coach, Usman Abd’Allah, is confident his side can overturn their CAF Champions League 1-0 Preliminary Round first leg defeat to Burkinabe side, Rahimo FC, reports Completesports.com.
Two-time CAF Champions League winners, Enyimba, struggled a bit against their little known opponent in Ougadougou and will need to score, at least, two goals without conceding in the reverse fixture in Aba to progress into the Second Preliminary Round.
“It’s not a good result for us, but at the same time it’s not catastrophic because if we had lost by two goals or three then it would be a difficult situation,” Abd’Allah said of the Enyimba defeat to Rahimo.
“As you know, we are all starting and results are always this way until we get ourselves into the competition where we get much fitter.
“They have a youthful and young team with very good mobility and good techniques and they are very fit.”
“The goal came in with a deflection. We could have saved that goal, but now we have to go back to Aba and cancel the goal and have to get another one more goal to seal the deal.
“We’ve seen the team now so the most important thing is to go back, sit down and work with what we’ve seen of the team.”
