Plateau United striker, Sunday Adetunji believes they still have a chance to reach the next round of the CAF Confederation Cup despite Plateau United 0-1 loss in the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup to Tanzanian side Simba SC played at the Jos Stadium.
Adetunji, who joined the Tin City club this summer, said the team have accepted the responsibility of their defeat and look forward to overturn the result.
The forward in a tweet on his official Twitter account is upbeat nothing is impossible.
“Nothing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything, and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means.
“We believe! We are United!! It’s Possible!!!
“We have accepted responsibility as a team, we apologize to our fans.
“It’s not over yet, we have to pick ourselves up and continue working ahead of the second leg.
“We have another chance to redeem ourselves and we will give our best,” Adetunji said with great optimism.
Meanwhile, Rivers United defender Ifeanyi Anaemena is confident they have the wherewithal to reach the first round of the CAF Confederation Cup.
Rivers United lost the match, though they got a vital away goal in the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup which ended 2-1 in favour of Futuro Kings on Saturday.
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side will host Futuro Kings this week in Port Harcourt and Anaemena believes the away goal was vital.
He said, “We are going to have a better result in the second leg.
“We are not actually down. The game ended 1-2 and if we can win 1-0 or 2-0 we are going to qualify.
“So it’s a matter for us to psych ourselves, motivate ourselves, go home and make sure that we get a positive result that will overturn this result that we have here.
“So we have not lost hope, we are going to get a better result.”
