Enyimba, the incumbent NPFL champions, has pledged to destroy Wydad Athletic in the African Football League’s (AFL) first match.

In the inaugural game of the African Football League (AFL), The People’s Elephant will face Wydad Athletic at Godswill Akpabio Stadium.

At the ‘Nest Of Champions’ Uyo, the quarterfinal match will begin at 7:00 p.m. Nigerian time.

The People’s Elephant won their first NPFL match of the season against Akwa United last Sunday, a victory that will boost their morale for the tie against Wydad AC.

Enyimba FC striker, Eze Happy Ekwutoziam, has stated that they will be able to contain the Moroccans in tomorrow’s match.

After their Thursday practice in preparation for the match, Ekwutoziam said the players are conscious of their responsibilities to the team.

“A lot is expected from us, knowing how strong Wydad AC is. They are one of the biggest clubs in Africa but we are not under pressure.

“We have been working hard, keeping shape and working on our strategies on how to eliminate them. A lot is expected from us not just from our fans, but Nigerians and our fans across West Africa. We are not going to let them down.

“We are going into the game with the right mindset to get a victory, and AFL league is a big platform. Being the maiden edition, it is an opportunity for most of us, and we are working hard to make the best out of it.

“We call on all our fans from all over the nation and Africa to come out en mass and cheer us to victory. We assure them to be at our best to get the needed result.

For Chibueze Izuogu, he called on supporters of the People’s Elephant to rally behind them and cheer them on to victory.

He said: “I am really happy to be in the club representing Nigeria in this maiden edition of the AFL league. I am promising our darling fans that we will do our best because the mentality is very high and our confidence is also high in the camp. Everyone is preparing very hard to get the victory that is required.”

World football governing body, FIFA, will live stream the match to fans across the globe. The African Football League (AFL) is a brand-new competition born from a partnership between the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and FIFA.

The inaugural edition of the tournament will bring together eight of the continent’s most famous and successful teams, from all the African regional blocs.
