CAF Confed Cup: Eguma Makes Demands As United Face Club Africain
Rivers United Coach, Stanley Eguma has asked for total concentration from his players as they step out to face Tunisian side Club Africain in the CAF Confederation Cup this weekend.
Eguma, who admitted that they have a big match in their hands, told his players not to only aim for victory but a big one with lots of goals.
He said: “We have to show a lot of concentration in the game and the players have to display commitment.
“It is a big game for us, a make or mar game so the players have to win the game and win with (a lot of) goals.
“It (failure to score plenty of goals) has been one of our predicaments (for some time) now.
“I am very optimistic that with what I have been seeing of the boys in training, the future is bright and I am sure we will have a good game on Sunday.
“I spoke to the players about this and even they admitted that it is a problem.
“For you to win a game, you must be alive for the entire 90 minutes and even beyond.
“To score one goal does not mean a match is over; you have to consolidate and also try to defend the goal.
All four teams in Group A, FUS Rabat (Morocco), Club Africain (Tunisia), Rivers United (Nigeria) and KCCA (Uganda) are locked on six points from four matches with goals difference separating them on the log.
