‘It’s not over yet’ – Enyimba coach Abdallah confident of reaching CAFCC final

Enyimba

Enyimba coach, Usman Abdallah is not giving up on their chase for a spot in the final of the CAF Confederation Cup despite their first leg semifinal defeat.

The Peoples Elephants, who advanced to the semifinal with a 5-1 victory, surprisingly fell 0-1 to Raja Casablanca in Aba on Wednesday.

They face a huge task ahead as they will be looking to upturn the deficit in their second leg encounter in Morocco.

The match will take place on October 24, and Abdallah says his team have studied their opponent and as a result the match could go in their favour.

Speaking to Complete Sports, Abdallah said “It’s not over yet.”

“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 win on aggregate, they will take on wither Egyptian club, Al Masry or Vita Club of Congo in the final of the CAF second-tier competition.
