CAF Confed Cup: Enugu Rangers Happy With Progress
Things are looking up for Enugu Rangers in the CAF Confederation Cup and players and officials of the Coal City team are pleased.
Rangers cruised past a well-organized, Algerian side, USMBA 2-0 to book a place in the Round of 32 on Sunday.
Speaking after the win and qualification for the next round, Rangers Coach, Gbenga said, “ Like I said at the start of last season, I hope to take the team to an appreciable position. Our sights are set for the finals of the competition. We fear no foe because to be a champion you have to beat champions.”
On his part, Nana Bonsu, the Ghanaian shot stopper for Rangers who has three clean sheets thus far in the competition said, “I thank God for the result. It can only be God that is taking the team to where we are going. Our opponents did well but we wanted the result more.”
Two goals hero, Bright Silas, said, “A good game by all members of the team and we thank God for the victory. It can get better as we continue in the competition.”
With the result, Rangers have qualified for the next round of the competition where their opponent will be known after the group stage draw is held on Friday, December 28, 2018 in Cairo, Egypt.
Rangers last won a continental trophy in 1977 after a 5-2 aggregate win over Cameroonian giants, Canon Sportive of Yaounde in the then CAF Cup Winners Competition.
