CAF CC: We Can Shock Enyimba, Says Rayon Sports Captain
Enyimba International have been a formidable team in Aba in recent years before they were forced to sojourn elsewhere for their home games during the renovation of the Aba International Stadium.
Now that the Peoples’ Elephant are back, they are set for another crucial tie at the edifice against Rayon Sports from Rwanda.
Having played a barren draw in the reverse fixture, Enyimba seem to have the advantage but according to Cafonline, Rayon Sports captain Abdul Rwatubyaye is upbeat their fairytale run in the second-tier continental can go all the way.
The Blues of Kigali’ as they are called are already in Aba, having landed in Nigeria on Thursday.
The skipper and experienced defender is convinced they can survive at the Enyimba International Stadium despite a barren draw in the first leg last week in Kigali.
“Enyimba is one of the best clubs in Africa. We respect them but we will have to show that we are Rayon Sports, and can do better against big teams,” Rwatubyaye told CAFOnline.com.
“The squad is okay and everyone is looking sharp and wants to help the team. With such commitment I believe we will survive in Aba.
“We are capable of beating any team having shown that in Kenya against Gor Mahia. We will do our best to win and progress to the last four.
Brazilian coach, Roberto Oliveira Goncalves de Calmo replaced Ivan Minnaert midway into the competition.
Rayon’s campaign only came to light after a 2-1 win over Kenyan champions Gor Mahia away in Nairobi in the penultimate match of the group stage, under tutelage of Brazilian trainer Roberto Oliveira Goncalves de Calmo, who replaced Ivan Minnaert midway.
A hard-fought lone goal victory over Young Africans of Tanzania in the ultimate match will later earn them a historic place at the last eight, becoming the first Rwandan club to achieve that milestone.
