CAFCC: Rangers survive AS Pelican scare to progress
Nigerian side Rangers International survived an early scare before beating AS Pelican of Gabon en route to progress into the playoff round of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Rangers defeated Pelican 3-1 at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium on Sunday to record a 4-3 aggregate win and ensure passage into the penultimate round before the group stage.

The Flying Antelopes lost the first leg 1-2 in Libreville a fortnight ago and were stunned further in the 6th minute on Sunday when Dertin Amores curled home a superb free kick after Semiu Liadi had fell Ndong Bitheghe.

Rangers, though out of sorts thereafter pulled level in the 18th minute when forward Ifeanyi George latched onto goalkeeper Opubo Japhet‘s long ball to loop his header over Pelican goalkeeper Donald Nze.

First half ended all square on the day but Rangers levelled the aggregate score just five minutes after the break when Nnamdi Egbujuo headed home an Ugwu Uwadiegwu corner kick. It was the former Heartland star’s second goal in as many games against Pelican.

Rangers then scored the decider five minutes later through enterprising winger Ibrahim Olawoyin who stabbed home substitute Chinonso Eziekwe’s cross at the far post.

Olawoyin who was a thorn in the flesh of the central Africans on his home debut for Rangers was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) after the game for his exploit.

Rangers have now booked a spot in the playoff round of the Confederation Cup where they will await one of the losing sides in this weekend’s CAF Champions League first round.

I think he is saying Rangers abandoned "Kofi and Afriye" football in favour of their "Native Law and Custom" .... as someone said of the team in the 1970s. :)
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects the wind to change; the realist adjusts his sails.
Don't believe anything until it has been officially denied.
If you are controversial, you will lose some votes. If you are courageous, you will lose the election.

Yes, what a "useless" team...
They varied their tactics to WIN instead of losing while playing Atilogwu football. :lol:

:rotf: :rotf: :rotf: That is actually one of my favorites quotes. The quote comes from the famed coach Alabi Aisien when his team -- Mighty Jets of Jos played against Rangers. His understudy at Jets at the time? Shuaibu Amodu.
The difficulties of statistical thinking describes a puzzling limitation of our mind: our excessive confidence in what we believe we know, and our apparent inability to acknowledge the full extent of our ignorance and the uncertainty of the world we live in. We are prone to overestimate how much we understand about the world and to underestimate the role of chance in events -- Daniel Kahneman (2011), Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics
