The Chairman of the Ondo State Football Agency (ODSFA), Otunba Tajudeen Akinyemi has made a rally call to Sunshine Stars FC ahead of the all important Aiteo Cup second Group B match with El kanemi Warriors on Wednesday.
Sunshine Stars made a slow start to life in Kano following a barren draw with giant Killers, Supreme Court FC in Monday’s group B opener at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano.
However, while addressing the players after a short work out at the main bowl of the Sanni Abacha stadium on Tuesday, Akinyemi charged the team to go for the jugular in the next matches, and expressed believe in the team’s chance to qualify from the group.
“I’m aware of the result of your first match and also the weather conditions, but football is just like that at times. Right now we must be ready to play for a win in our next game.
“I know you guys have the quality and in unity can do it; you are fantastic set of players. You have all what it’s take and believe you can deliver tomorrow, am I right?” Otunba Akinyemi asked after pepping up the players.
The players responded in strong affirmation and promised to go for a win against an El Kanemi Warriors side that lost 2-1 to Rangers in the group’s other opening game on Monday.
The Sunshine Stars v El Kanemi kicks off at 2p.m. on Wednesday while the other Group B tie between group leaders Rangers of Enugu and Supreme Court FC will follow at 4:00pm
