CAF Confederation Cup: Eguma rues missed chances against USM Alger

Posted : 01 April 2024

Rivers United's technical adviser, Stanley Eguma, has expressed dissatisfaction over the team's failure to convert their chances in their victory over USM Alger.

The Pride of Rivers secured a slim 1-0 win against the Algerian side in the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final first-leg tie at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo on Sunday.

Augustine Okejepha scored the only goal of the encounter, but Eguma said his team will work on the lapses identified ahead of the return leg in Algiers.

"We started with a lot of intensity which yielded that early goal. I thought my boys would continue that way.

"We worked hard to create a lot of scoring chances, but unfortunately, the chances were not converted. The scoreline did not reflect the standard of our play," he said.

"I was impressed with my team’s level of chance creation, but over-anxiety affected them in scoring during vital moments.

"We will go back to the drawing board and see how we can improve on that.

"For the scoreline, we just thank God we were able to win because that is the most important thing.

"At this stage last season, we lost our home game (against Young Boys of Tanzania) 0-2 but eventually got a draw in the return leg away from home.

"We will go away to Algeria with a good fight and hopefully we will come out with a better result."

The return leg is slated for the Stade du Juliet next week Sunday.
