Rayon Sports captain Abdul Rwatubyaye has said his team are focused on getting a win to against Enyima in their second leg CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final clash in Aba on Sunday.
Both teams played a goalless draw in Kigali last Sunday, making the Aba tie the decider. Enyimba need an outright win while a score draw is enough for the Rwandese.
Rwatubyaye told CAF Online that having survived against bigger teams in the competition, they can upset Enyimba in Aba to qualify for the semi-final.
“Enyimba are one of the best clubs in Africa. We respect them but we will have to show that we are Rayon Sports, and can do better against big teams,” Rwatubyaye said.
“The squad is okay and everyone is looking sharp and wants to help the team. With such commitment I believe we will survive in Aba. We are capable of beating any team having shown that in Kenya against Gor Mahia. We will do our best to win and progress to the last four.
Our journey was very tough. Many of our fans gave us no chance to go through. But the draw away against USM Alger and the win over Gor Mahia really brought us back into contention. Being among the quarter-finalists is an indication that Rayon Sports is a good team and on the right track.
I want to help Rayon Sports to reach semis finals and I’m looking forward to that. Enyimba cannot stand between my dream and me. We will give it our all. The CAF Confederation Cup is by far the biggest tournament that most of us (players of Rayon Sports) have played in. I believe it’s only the first of many bigger competitions to come for me and my colleagues.” He added.
