Nigerian born and Energie FC goalkeeper Damilola Wilson has told Naijafootballplus.com that the clash against Enyimba International in Wednesday’s CAF Confederation Cup second round, first leg encounter is a must-win for his side.
The Energie FC goalkeeper moved to Benin Republic in 2013 from Bolowotan FC of Lagos and has nationalized as Beninoise.
Wilson said his team is determined to edge out the Two-time African champions at the Stade Matheu Kerekou.
“It is a game I have been looking forward to, since the draws were made I have always wished we play Enyimba. The result against Haifa was special because that gave me the opportunity to play against Enyimba.
“We are not under any pressure to achieve our desire target, Enyimba is a big team on the continent but that won’t count for much in the game. In the last round, Haifa was rated high above us and we knocked them out. We are motivated and we are ready to battle them.
“It will be an emotional day for me, the love of the game has made me switch nationality. This is the new phase in my career, and I have a target to write my name in the history book of Benin Republic both at the club level and national team. I have kept against Nigeria U17 and U20, I will surely cope with the Enyimba challenge.
“We have doubled our preparations and stepped up our game. It is a big game and we are optimistic of winning. The victory will be important to us, we want to win well and have the advantage before the second leg,” Wilson said to Naijafootballplus.com.
The game will kickoff at 4pm Nigerian time at the Stade Matheu Kerekou.
