According to Rivers United head coach Stanley Eguma, their inability to capitalise on their opportunities lost them the victory over Etoile Filante.
At the Stade Municipal Stadium in Yamoussoukro on Sunday night, the Pride of Rivers and the Burkinabes drew 0-0 in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup second-round matchup.
Eguma, though, praised his players for their perseverance throughout the battle.
He voiced faith in the players’ ability to advance to the group stage.
To leave Yamoussoukro without conceding was a “great performance from the players,” Egunma stated in his post-game interview.
“Throughout the confrontation, the player shown moral integrity and tenacity.
“We didn’t take advantage of our opportunities, but we’ll go back and fix that so we can try to advance to the competition’s group stage.”
On October 1, 2023, the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt will host the second leg.
