TotalCAFCC: Omoyele braced for more challenges

Enyimba FC striker Tosin Omoyele has told he is braced for more footballing challenges at the People’s Elephant in both continental and domestic action.

Omoyele scored the winner when his side edged ES Setif of Algeria 2-1 in Aba last Sunday and both sides will face once again this Sunday in their fourth group game of the 2020/2021 Total CAF Confederation Cup (TotalCAFCC) competition.

On their return from Algeria, Omoyele will learn that he has another attacker to compete with for the lone centre forward role after Enyimba signed Dakkada FC forward Christian Ekong during the week.

That means Omoyele will have to compete with regular suspects Victor Mbaoma, Samad Kadiri and now Ekong for the role. He believes it is a “challenge of my life”.

“I call it a challenge of my life because I knew this is how it is going to be at Enyimba,” began Omoyele to

“One way one or the other though, it helps me because I learn from others when I’m not playing and I just make use of my chance when I am being given opportunity to play.”

Fatai Osho’s Enyimba currently top Group A in the Confederation Cup but must at least avoid defeat against Setif on Sunday to hold on to their leadership position in the group.

Their Algerian opponents have promised fire and brimstone but Omoyele says the players will be ready to fight for the team in Algeria.

“We are happy that we are on top of the group, we know already the trip wouldn’t be easy for us but we will do our best so we can remain at the top of the table.

“We are good to go and we are in Setif to fight for the best of the team,” added the former Plateau United striker.

The Enyimba contingent arrived in Algeria on Friday night after some 52 hours trip from Aba on Tuesday and will face their opponents at the May 8 1945 Stadium in Setif on Sunday.
