Sunshine are underdogs, says Idoko

Sunshine are underdogs, says Idoko Ondo State Football agency boss, Mike Idoko acknowledged that the Nigerian representatives are the underdogs in their CAF Champions League semi-final clash against Egyptian giants Ah Ahly.

Sunshine were handed the unenviable task of facing the six-time winners when they came second to Esperance of Tunisia in group A. Esperance and former champions TP Mazembe will play the other semi-final in a repeat of the 2010 final, which the Congolese club won convincingly.

“The odds are against us. Nobody expects us to win because they are a great side but this is football and anything is possible.

They will be the side playing with great pressure because it will be no news if they beat us so that could work in our favour,” Idoko said

Sunshine will play the first leg on the weekend of October 5 and a good result will put them on a good pedestal for the second decisive leg.
