The Captain of Enyimba International FC, Chinedu Udoji, has said that though Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt is a threat to his club in their quest to win the Confederation Cup, Enyimba will emerge victorious.

In a chat with PREMIUM TIMES on Saturday, the midfielder commended Dolphins for making it to the final.
“I respect Dolphins, they are a better side for getting to the finals. They are also a threat to
us. All the teams that participated threatened us but here we are today at the final.

“I thank God for helping us to make it to the finals, and at the final stage anything is possible,” he said.

The 22-year-old player said he believes Enyimba can still retain the Confederation Cup which they won last year.
“I do believe we can retain the cup by God’s Grace that is our main target, we want to retain the cup by defending it well,” he said.

Talking about the strategies put in place for the final match against Dolphins, the player said “we don’t have any special preparation for the FA Cup final, we will only go back and play the way we used to play, with determination during the match. Our motivation is to defend the cup and by the special grace of God we will win.”

“I am confident in my team, we will get there definitely by God’s Grace,” Udoji said.

Dolphins FC will be fighting for their fifth Federation Cup while Enyimba International FC will battle for their fourth.

Defending champions, Enyimba, will tackle Premier league counterpart, Dolphins FC, in the 2014 Federation Cup final at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos on August 16.
