CAF Champions League: Pinnick Urges Enyimba To Eliminate Etoile

President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has charged Enyimba to beat Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia, in their CAF Champions League clash on Wednesday.

The current NPFL champions, travel for the return leg with a 3-0 advantage from the first leg in Port Harcourt and are aiming to reach the money-spinning group stage.

“We have immense confidence in Enyimba to go all the way. They have won the title twice before and are by far the most experienced Nigeria club in Africa. The NFF is giving them the support they need to triumph,” Pinnick told

Enyimba chairman, Felix Anyasi-Agwu, insists that Etoile, who they beat in the final of the 2004 edition, will fall again.

“We know what North African teams are capable of. They are usually very strong and determined at home and also throw a lot of antics into the arrangements. But we are very, very ready. We expect hostility on and off the field. We have trained under floodlights and on artificial turf, and we will give as much as we get,” Anyansi-Agwu said.
