Nigeria’s representative at the 2015 edition of CAF’s Confedetions Cup, Warri Wolves, have said they are ready to face AC Leopard.
Wolves were on Tuesday drawn to play AC Leopard of Congo in the last match before the group stage.
With the first leg away, the Managing Director of the team, Davidson Owumi told journalists they were sure of making it to the group stage.
Mr. Owumi who spoke immediately after the draw which was conducted by the General Secretary, CAF, Hicham El Amrani, said the God that started the good work will not abandon them at this stage.
He said the team will work hard to see that they do not disappoint the Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, who has been a driving force behind the team.
According to Mr. Owumi, the team is ready to face anybody in the continent and hopefully, overcome.
“We are cock sure of qualifying for the group stage and that has been our dream. Our God that has been helping us will not disappoint us and with the Governor behind us like he has been doing, we will scale through. We will have to double our effort this time around and we know, we will get there.”
On his part, Coach Aigbogun said they have always prepared for any of the team and that the most important thing is for the boys to play well.
He said he will have to find out now how they play and that the first leg away will help them prepare well for a good result.
The first leg comes up in Congo in the weekend of 15, 16 and 17th of this month while the second leg comes up in Warri City Stadium on the 7th of June, 2015.
