Good day everyone,
This will be brief. Please, thanks.
Last night, the CHAN eagles started their quest for continental glory with a barren draw. A draw which might be seen as a harsh result if statistics are taken into consideration.
I am still wondering how we got 20 shots but kept just managed to find a meagre 4 on target and these 4 where as weak as they could be. Of the 5 Enyimba players in Morocco, Ezenwa, who was hardly tested, started as the team’s captain and Onolapo was only a substitute.
The CHAN Eagles may have shown why we don’t see many goals in our league. There were many chances, tho some were unlucky to end up on the upright, but when it mattered most, we were either too cautious not to miss or too comfortable to score.
Then there were also sloppy passes, some were just short, some were misdirected and others were misunderstood by the recipient. I think we need to work on our link play. Libya may not be as lenient. Our league is an improving one and if we work harder on our weaknesses, we can rub shoulders with the biggest names in Africa.
We play Heartland tomorrow in Calabar and I think it is time we show them that everywhere can be home to Enyimba, everywhere including Owerri. They may not enjoy their welcome but we have no choice because we need to start winning. Aigbogun 2.0 knows that too.
We’ll be back tomorrow with more on the Oriental Derby outside the Orient.
