SPORT Bosso: El-Kanemi still in con­ti­nen­tal race

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS -

E-l Kanemi War­riors coach, Ladan Bosso is op­ti­mistic about his side’s chances of se­cur­ing a con­ti­nen­tal ticket de­spite fall­ing to a 1-0 de­feat against Niger Tor­na­does.

The Desert War­riors were rat­tled by Bo­laji Adeyemo’s lone strike and handed their topthree pur­suit a huge set­back at the Con­flu­ence Sta­dium on Sun­day.

But the gaffer is adamant his side will rep­re­sent the coun­try in Africa next sea­son.

“It was not a bad game and I want to ap­pre­ci­ate the of­fi­ci­at­ing match of­fi­cials. They did what they were sup­posed to do,” Bosso told me­dia.

“Un­for­tu­nately, we got our­selves many scor­ing chances and wasted them but Tor­na­does saw three chances and con­verted one. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Tor­na­does.

“We came out to at­tack but the game was not flow­ing well for us. The link be­tween the mid­field and at­tack was not there. And that’s why pres­sure was al­ways on us.

“We are still in the race to con­tend for the con­ti­nen­tal ticket this sea­son. We still have five games left to play and we can still fight a spot. Hope is not lost.”
