Enyimba and Super Eagles midfielder Ikechukwu Ibenegbu is confident the Aba Millionaires will go past Tunisian foes, Etoile du Sahel in the Second Round of the CAF Champions League, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Ibenegbu scored Enyimba's goal in the 28th minute in their 2-1 defeat to Burundi's Vital' O on Saturday evening at the Prince Louis Rwagasore Stadium, Bujumbura, but Vital O's Shasiri Nahimana and Laudit Mavugo turned the match on its head.
Thankfully, the People's Elephant advanced to the next round courtesy of a 6-3 aggregate, having annihilated their opponents 5-1 in the first leg two weeks ago in Abuja and their reward is in the form of the Tunisians who edged past Morrocan side,Olympique Khouribga.
Ibenegbu spoke exclusively to Completesportsnigeria.com from the team's Ego Hotel in Bujumbura on their objectives going forward.
"Vital O gave us tough time I must confess. Their fans were in numbers and the players themselves seemed to believe that they can overturn the first leg result," Ibenegbu told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"That one is past now. Etoile is our opponents in the Second Round. Honestly, that will be tough as well.
"They (Etoile) are a strong side, but our target this season is to win every trophy we are participating in. Personally, I'm worried by the opposition. We will do it game after game though," Mosquito as the former El Kanemi and Warri Wolves star is fondly called told Completesportsnigeria.com.
Enyimba's next game in all competitions is a Nigeria Premier Football League home game against Plateau United on Thursday, March 24.
Paul Aigbogun's team are currently lying in the 18th place with three points albeit have three outstanding matches.
