Abuja - Enugu Rangers coach, Okey Emordi, hailed his players after the team advanced to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup ahead of Tunisia's CS Sfaxien.
The Nigerian side, who were underdogs ahead of the match, held Sfaxien to a goalless draw to reach the mini-league phase.
"I am proud of my boys. They did me proud and fought like the Trojans that we are known to be. The Tunisians really gave us a good fight today but my players were up to the task. I am really happy.
"From here there is no stopping us and the trophy remains our target,” Emordi said.
Head of delegation, Victor Atuonwu, was overjoyed with the outcome of the match.
“Our players also showed their never say die spirit which earned us this result. It is for the entire Nigerians and especially for the good people of Enugu State who have always been there for us," Atuonwu said.
Rangers beat the odds to hold the Tunisian side to a goalless second leg, third round match inside a packed Stade Taïeb Mhiri.
Goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel was the hero of the game with breath taking saves.
