Enyimba head coach Fatai Osho praised the “battling spirits” of his players in their nervy CAF Confederation Cup win against South Africa’s Orlando Pirates on Wednesday, reports Completesports.com.
The Peoples Elephant dominated the game for long spell but were wasteful in front of goal.
Cyril Olisema however salvaged the day for the Aba giants when he netted the winning goal deep into stoppage time.

“We are so happy about the result. It was not easy looking at the quality of Orlando Pirates. They did very well, and we had to work extra hard to get that result,” Osho told the media after the game.
“I will give a lot of commendation to the players for their resilience that they could get it done. So, we want to celebrate this moment and we will start looking at the knockout stage.”
Enyimba finished as group winners while the Bucs slipped into the second spot on the head-to-head rule, although both will take their place in Friday’s quarter-final draw.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
