Abdallah: Enyimba Can Still Reach CAF Confederation Cup Final
Enyimba coach Usman Abdallah believes that there’s still all to play for in the CAF Confederation Cup second leg semi-final clash against Raja Casablanca despite losing 1-0 at home in the first leg on Wednesday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Abdelilah Hafidi’s 48th minute goal handed Raja Casablanca a first leg win ahead of the second leg billed for the 24th of October in Casablanca, Morocco.
“It’s not over yet,” Abdallah told CSN.
We’ve been in this situation during the group stages of the competition before and we came out victors.”
“It was a tough match with a lot of technical intelligence. They denied us the ball so that we could not play.”
“We had the chance to equalise with the penalty, but we couldn’t.”
“But this game will only be won or lost after the second leg.”
“We have seen them very well and so we will organise and see what we can do against them in two weeks.”
Should Enyimba pull the chestnut out of the fire, they will face the winner of the game involving Egyptian club, Al Masry and Vita Club of Congo. The first leg ended goalless in Egypt.
