International F.C of Enugu has departed the shores of the country
for the Gabonese capital, Libreville, for the first leg, first round encounter with Association Sportive Pelican football club.
Rangers coach Benedict Ugwu said on the fixture, “I have a strong belief that with the
talents at our disposal and the training regime we have gone through
in the pre-season, we shall come back with a good result by God’
grace. We don’t k now much of our opponent but our preparations have
always been to play against any opponent. Surely, it won’t be easy as
there are no more ‘small’ teams in the game. They did well in the
preliminary round but I believe that we have all it takes to stop them
in this round.”
The twenty-five man delegation of 18 players and seven officials was
led by Davdison Owumi and was airlifted by
Asky Airline the team is expected back in Nigeria on Sunday.
