Rangers target win over Nasarawa United to honour Late Ifeanyi George

Enugu Rangers vice captain Tope Olusesi has expressed unequivocally that Rangers 1-0 win over Pyramids FC of Egypt was good for the team’s prestige even though it proved abortive at long run following El Masry’s 1-0 victory against Mauritania side Noaudibou which effectively knocked out Rangers out of the group stage of the CAF Confederation cup.

Tope Olusesi disclosed Rangers will go all out for victory against Nasarawa United to honour late teammate Ifeanyi George this evening.

It would be recalled that striker Ifeanyi George lost his life in a ghastly auto accident on his way to Lagos on 22 March 2020 following the cancelation of the Nigerian Professional Football League due to COVID-19.

Monday 22nd will make it a year the energetic striker passed and Olusesi said Rangers want to win the game in order to move closer to their ambition and also honor late George.

“Monday’s match against Nasarawa United will be tough but we are playing for the maximum points at stake to move closer to realizing our dreams for the season and also in memory of our late colleague, Ifeanyi George, who died exactly one year ago.” Olusesi said.

Chiamaka Madu also echoed Olusesi’s statement, saying they are ready to fight for everything that is at stake.

“We know what is at stake in the game with Nasarawa United and prepared to give our all to get the maximum points on Monday.”

The match will be played at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium in Enugu and the time is 4:00 pm.
