CAFCC: Rivers Utd Land in Egypt for Al Masry
The Rivers United’s contingent for Sunday’s TotalEnergies CAF Confederations Cup additional playoff round 2nd leg clash with Al Masry of Egypt landed in Cairo on Thursday evening, from Lagos aboard Egypt Airline
The contingent comprising of players and officials on board the B737-800 aircraft touched down at the Cairo international airport at 9:30pm local time.
Sunday’s encounter is scheduled for 5pm Nigeria time (6pm Egyptian time) at the 86,000 capacity Borg El Arab Stadium, 25 km west of Alexandria, Egypt.
Rivers United had earlier reported to CAF about the antics of the Egyptians who denied the contingent visas early enough for the tram to travel.
Reason, however, prevailed as the visas were issued and the contingent jetted out yesterday to Egypt for the encounter.
The Nigerian side won 2-1 on Sunday in Aba and must avoid two goals defeated to advance to the lucrative group stage.
