AS Far coach Fernando Da Cruz reveals how his side managed to find a way past Remo Stars in the CAF Confederations Cup first preliminary round clash.
Remo Stars were the favorites to go through after securing an inspiring 1-1 draw in the first leg played in Rabat last week.
The Moroccans however roared back into the contest and won the reversed fixture 1-0 at the Ikenne Stadium on Sunday.
Joseph Guede grabbed the only goal of the game to end Morocco’s Association’s Sports of Forces Armed Royal to the next round 2-1 on aggregate.
Remo Stars however become the fifth Nigerian club to ever crash out to the ‘military’ tactics of the Royal Moroccan Army football club.
“I’m happy with the victory because Remo Stars are a good team, they are very good playing on the line, and dangerous with set pieces, we saw it in the first leg,”
“We worked hard to beat them at home, it wasn’t easy and I’m proud of my boys. They gave me everything.” The Coach told www.brila.net.
AS Far will now meet Ashanti GB of Ghana for a place in the lucrative Group Phase next.
