Egwuekwe boastful ahead AC Leopards clash

04 June 2015, 08:58

Abuja - Ahead of their second leg, final play-off round CAF Confederations Cup tie against AC Leopards of Congo this weekend, Warri Wolves defender Azubuike Egwuekwe has boasted that they will overturn the 3-0 defeat suffered in Kinshasa two weeks ago.

The 25-year old Nigeria international admits they were caught unaware by their Congolese counterparts in the first leg, and says they have learnt their lessons and will make corrections.

"Them beating us 3-0 is not really a big deal right now because the most important thing is to overturn that deficit.

"There were some poor calls by the referee and coupled with the fact that we were caught unawares to an extent.

"They knew we hadn't lost at home and they were out for us but we shall also be out for them this weekend.

"If they can beat us by three goals, I'm confident we can overturn that scoreline. It's not going to be an easy task but we're capable.

"Nothing stops us from beating them by four or five or even six goals. It is very possible and I'm sure we'll get it," he said boastfully.

Egwuekwe, alongside other Warri Wolves teammates, Gbolahan Salami and Solomon Kwambe will leave the Super Eagles camp to play in the game.
