Rangers upbeat at Confeds Cup prospects

05 June 2013, 10:33Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Enugu Rangers Chairman, Festus Onu, is confident his team will win the Orange CAF Confederations Cup.

Onu said the fact that his team has knocked out one of the continent's biggest teams, CS Sfaxien of Tunisia in the absence of key players who are on national duty, bode well for the team's chances in the competition.

Rangers have ably dealt with the absence of Chigozie Agbim and Sunday Mba who are currently with the Nigeria squad preparing for the upcoming 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Kenya.

“Their absence shows that the other players in the fold are made of quality stuff. Remember, we have got to this stage by eliminating CS Sfaxien, the only side that has retained this trophy back-to-back 2007 and 2008. They were also runners-up once in 2010,” said Onu.

“We have beaten one of the strongest sides in Africa but we will keep working hard and we will stay humble. We ask Nigerians to pray for us,” he concluded.

Rangers will compete in Group A of the competition alongside Saint Georges (Ethiopia), Etoile du Sahel (Tunisia) and Stade Malien (Mali).

The group winners and runners-up qualify for the semifinal ahead of the decider which will be played before the end of the year.
