Enugu Rangers central attacker, Edoh Ocheme has said his side are capable of upturning the huge deficit against the Egyptian giants, Zamalek Sporting Club.

The Nigerian champions went down 1-4 to the Mediterranean Knights in Sunday’s Caf Champions League first round fixture clash at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo.

Ocheme however admitted that the goal margin is quite massive but insisted that nothing is impossible in the round leather game.

“I’m still confused how we conceded those number of goals. I think the goals are simply too many.

“I never thought we could concede more than a goal in the encounter. I wept profusely when the goals kept coming.  We were three goals down in the first 45 minutes.

“Well, we have come to accept the outcome as no amount of crying could change the result of the match.

“Right now, we have our jobs well cut out as we must score at least three unreplied goals to progress to the next stage of the competition.

“The task looks daunting but not insurmountable once we are able to do the needful as well as prepare adequately for the reverse fixture clash.

“All hopes are not lost as we are quite capable of scoring the three mandatory goals in the first 45 minutes just as Zamalek SC performed at their backyard in Cairo.

“At least we have role models in Barcelona to copy and look up to as we get ready for the reverse clash.

“Barcelona have shown that in football nothing is conclusively done until it’s completely over.

“That’s the mentality we will bring into the second leg coupled with some self-belief I’m sure we will upturn the disadvantage to advance to the next stage of the competition.
