Speaking to Saturday Vanguard Sports at the airport before leaving for the Malian capital, Ocheje who was in goal for the Akure based team in the return leg of their 3-0 bashing of Recreativo Libolo said he and colleagues will return back to Nigeria with victory.

“I am fit now after I got knocked down against Akwa Utd. The team is battle ready for the game on Saturday (today), the team spirit is high and we are sure of picking a positive result in Mali.

“If I am giving the chance to start the game, I will be able to keep a clean sheet. We conceded cheap goals against Recreativo and we have learnt our lesson going into this game,” Ocheje said.
