Ahead of Sunday’s 2nd leg Confederation Cup encounter between Al-Masry Sc of Egypt and FC Ifeanyi Ubah, the Proprietor, FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, Thursday, urged the Nigerian community in Egypt to come out en masse to cheer the Nigerian Professional Football League side to victory.
Ubah, who joined his team to jet out to Egypt Thursday, aboard an EgyptAir flight, in a statement personally signed by him said: “To the Nigeria Community in Egypt, I write to inform you that one of the Nigerian Clubs will be playing against Al-Masry Sc in Ismailia Stadium Egypt, and wish to have you all at the stadium to cheer the team up.
“FC Ifeanyi Ubah “The Anambra Warriors” will on Sunday by 7pm Nigerian time, engage their Egyptian counterpart (Al-Masry Sc ) in CAF Confederation Cup return leg of the first Round of the competition.
“It is of note that FC Ifeanyi Ubah defeated their Egyptian counterpart Al-Masry Sc one goal to nil (1-0) on Sunday 12th February, 2017 in Anambra state during the first leg encounter. Now, the team needs at least a point from Ismailia encounter to qualify to the next round of the competition.
“Your coming to the Ismailia Stadium for the Support of this Nigeria Team will be most appreciated as this is the Club’s first Continental outing outside the shore of Nigeria.
“Again, history has always had it that Nigerian Community living in any host country always come out to cheer a Nigerian team up whenever they play in any country outside of Nigeria. Nigerians in Egypt have never failed to follow this antecedent.
“I write as an individual who had followed Nigerian teams to various competitions outside Nigeria for years past, where I would always meet with Nigerian Community in such countries as they trooped out in solidarity to cheer Nigeria team up during a match.
“I therefore urge you all to come out en mass. Let’s go cheer our team to victory…
Anyi Bu Ndi Mmeri!”
