Striker Gbolahan Salami is in upbeat mood, charging his Warri Wolves teammates to stiffen their sinews as they play against home side, MK Etancheite of Congo Democratic Republic, today, in the second leg of their second round CAF Confederation Cup competition.
Wolves, the only Nigerian club remaining in this year’s CAF-organised club competitions, will take a slim 2-1 advantage into today’s game against Etancheite in Kinshasa. Salami, scorer of Wolves’ two goals in the first leg match played in Warri, knows the enormity of the task before the Delta State government-owned club and has urged his colleagues to be prepared to get a positive result against their hosts, Etancheite.
“They [Etanchéité ] are no pushovers,” said the Nigeria international. “They are a big team and this demands everybody gives his best so we can come through with a good result, perhaps a win. “We’ll play with our hearts; this is an opportunity for the club to fly Nigeria’s flag high as the only football club left on the continent.” Winner of this tie will qualify to play in the group phase of the Confederation Cup tournament.
