NPFL24: Debut goal excites Kalu Nweke as Ilechukwu demands confidence from players

The head Coach of Rangers International of Enugu, Fidelis Ilechukwu has said that his team is still a work in progress, despite edging over Doma United 2-1 on Saturday at the Akwa City Stadium.

The Coach who joined Enugu Rangers from Plateau United during the preseason Break, in a post-match interview, expressed his worry on the issue of his new side not capitalising on several chances created in the game to go 3 or 4 goals ahead in the game, stated that he was grateful for the 3 maximum point, which he said was very important to his team, but emphasized the need for his boys to take their chances.

According to him, “It was a very good game, both teams created chances, but I feel we didn’t score enough chances today, so I’m worried. We are a work in progress, though I think the boys were a little bit jittery and playing under pressure and that’s why they couldn’t convert their chances, so in our next training, we will continue to work more on goalscoring while also giving the boys more confidence.”

On his part, the honourable commissioner for Youth and Sports in Enugu state, Barr. Ekweremadu added volume to the Coaches’ assertion by stating that he expected more goals in the encounter, but he wasn’t worried as it was just the first game of the season, so he expected the team to work more on the lapses and become better.

Kalu Nweke who scored his first goal for the Flying Antelopes on his Debut was very happy as he was on the score sheet, appreciating his teammates for their belief and support, hoping that his team will work hard to improve on their goal-scoring. Kalu Nweke scored the first goal of the match in the 28th minute of the game.
