Skipper of the side, Daniel Itodo know what awaits his team in North Africa, but believes they have what it takes to cause an upset.

“I believe in the team and the coaches we have and I know we are going to cause an upset in Tunis and get a win. We are well prepared both physically, psychologically and spiritually ready for the task ahead, we know what we are going to face intimidation from their fans but we are ready,” Itodo CAFonline.

Itodo has said the victory in the first leg was down to self belief and fighting spirit, especially noting they were first to concede.

“We fought till the end and that is what we are taking to Tunis. We are not ready to give up,” he adds.

    Very dubious penalty against plateau utd. It’s becoming very irritating engaging these north Africans in football. Thumbs up to the plateau utd team. They did well defending, but could have done better in attack against the ever cheating north Africans.
