Usman Abdallah says the win over TS Galaxy in Nelspruit could be a huge morale boost for Enyimba going into the CAF Confederation Cup group stage.
Enyimba defeated TS Galaxy 2-1 on Sunday to complete a 4-1 aggregate victory over the South African club and progress to the competition proper.
Abdallah told www.brila.net that the win marks a statement of intent from the Nigerian champions.
“It’s a win which is a moral booster to win an away match most especially a continental away match. It’s very important to get that confidence going into the group stage with a win.
“But at the same time it’s not about the result but the qualification. And to get into the group stage this strongly, gives the players confidence in pursing this competition. I am very happy,” the Coach said.
