Nigeria’s representative to this year’s Confederation of African football, CAF organised championship, Enyimba football club of Aba, has called on its fans and supporters to come out in their numbers to support them in their league outing.
Enyimba is preparing to host Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia in the first leg of their third round CAF fixture, and the clubs midfielder Razaq Aliyu, is urging local football fans to support the side as they look to progress to the next stage of the money spinning competition.
The fixture against the African giants will be played on Sunday April 10, at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt southern Nigeria.
“The game is at Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium on Sunday. We urge football fans to come and support Enyimba on that day,” the defensive midfielder has said.
“We want everyone to come because it won’t be any other match for Enyimba, but the Champions League.
“We are ambassadors for Nigeria in Africa. We are playing against a team that will be no pushover. We want to continue flying the Enyimba flag high and not disappoint Nigerians.”
“The players are working so hard to ensure that we make the second leg match a mere formality,” he explained.
Razaq Aliyu added, “I have never doubted the ability of Enyimba for we are capable of playing to our full potentials against the Tunisian outfit.”
Only Enyimba is still competing on the continent out of the four teams that qualified to represent Nigeria at this season’s CAF Champions league and Confederation cup.
