CAF Confederations Cup: Enugu Rangers Down, Not Out
Enugu Rangers have tendered an apology to their fans and Nigerians, in general, following their disappointing 0-2 loss to Etoile du Sahel on Sunday in their Caf Confederation Cup match day four tie.
While hopes were high that Rangers will avenge the 2-1 defeat, they suffered in Sousse in the reverse fixture, that was not the case as the Tunisian outfit completed a double on the Nigerian flag bearers.
Nobert Okolie, the Media Manager for Rangers told Bounce News that they are unhappy with the outcome of Sunday’s game but was quick to add that there is still hope.
“It was a bad day at the office for Rangers, but we have put the defeat behind us, we want to apologise to our fans and Nigerians as a whole,” Okolie declared.
He added: “We still have six points to fight for and we are ready to give our best to see that we qualify for the quarterfinals.
Maher Hannachi and Iheb Msakni were the goal scorers for Etoile du Sahel in Sunday’s tie at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium as the Tunisians boosted their chance of progressing into the quarter-final of the second-tier club competition.
With four games now completed by the teams in Group B, Etoile du Sahel are on top with seven points while CS Sfaxien also from Tunisia have six points.
Enugu Rangers and SALITAS FC are third and fourth respectively and both teams will be up against each other in the next round of games.
Having defeated the Burkinabe club in the reverse fixture, Rangers will be targeting a double over the team to help improve their own chances of making it to the quarterfinals.
