Edoh Ocheme: We are not afraid of any team
Enugu Rangers forward Edoh Ocheme is hoping that his team can score goals against Zamalek in the first-leg of the round of 32 of CAF Champions League.
The Nigerian champions want to make it easier for themselves when they face Zamalek in Nigeria by scoring at least a goal in Egypt, and Ocheme believes in his team enough to do so.
“Zamalek SC are mere name same as Enugu Rangers nothing so spectacular but the inputs of the players into the team,” Ocheme told SuperSport.
“We are not afraid or scared of any team in the continent as far as our determination to excel in the CAF Champions League is concerned. I believe we will make it brilliantly in Cairo, we are going all out to attack not to defend.
“Of late in the domestic front where we have been wrongly written off we have been scoring goals that’s the mentality we are taking to Zamalek SC.
“I strongly believe we will get goal or goals in Cairo to make life in the reverse fixture really tough for them.
“Of course, we know they will not find life easy in Nigeria once we are able to eke a goal in the encounter. Our target is to score but in football anything can happen which can as well see us not only scoring but going ahead to record a stunning win.
“There is always an element of luck in football so we are positive to come back with a result that will put smiles on the faces of Nigerians.
“We will certainly get it right both on the home and continental fronts, we will qualify to the next stage of the competition at the expense of Zamalek SC,” he added.
The Whites will host the Nigerian side on March 12 at El-Salam stadium, before travelling to Nigeria to face them a week later.
