Despite the 4-1 advantage in the first leg for Plateau United against Al Akhdar of Libya in the CAF Confederation competition, Timothy Heman Magaji charged the team not to be complacent in the reverse fixture next week in Libya, www.totorinews.com reports.
Magaji, who is the NFF leader of the delegation for both games, stated that Plateau United displayed tremendous zeal to win, the team had the dominance, but their attackers were very wasteful in front of goal.
He added that Plateau United would have scored more than seven goals and that the 4-1 scoreline was not the true reflection of the game, but it is still a very good result to build upon going into the second leg.
“It was a very difficult game. Plateau United gave their all to win 4-1. Though, the team would have scored more goals because they created so many opportunities to nail the Libyan side with at least seven, eight goals,” Timothy Magaji told the media in Abuja.
“But at the same time, I think there is a relief that the game ended 4-1. The second leg will not be easy and that is the reason Plateau United must not be complacent in the second leg.
“We saw how the Libyan team almost scored on two occasions when the ball hit the woodwork. Al Akhdar are not pushovers.
“The team is very technical. Nevertheless, I see Plateau United getting the qualification to play in the group stage of the competition.
Magaji is one of the newly elected board members of the NFF representing North East region.
