Chairman of Nasarawa United Isaac Danladi has said his team could go all the way and become the first Nigerian club to win the CAF Confederation Cup after they edged past Senegal’s Generation Foot at the weekend to qualify for the first round of the competition.
“Perhaps, it is too early to start talking about winning the title, but I can tell you that we have learnt a lot on how to hold our own on the road and we will now take every match as it comes,” Danladi said after his team played a 0-0 draw with the Senegalese team to win 2-1 on aggregate and advance.
After a narrow 2-1 win in Abuja in the first leg, many were those who thought ‘The Solid Miners’ had come to the end of the road, particularly with the brilliant display of the visitors.
But on Saturday, Nasarawa United proved too strong for the Senegalese, and will now play CS Constantine of Algeria in the first round with the first leg in Abuja on March 13.
“We will keep our heads at the level and approach it one match at a time. Our objective will always be to earn a good result from every game,” Danladi added.
