The bathroom is to die for.When asked if they would build again, Mr Rete said plans were currently up in the air, but the idea of constructing another home fit for their family appealed to them.“It was very challenging, but it was very exciting at the same time,” Mr Rete said.

Enyimba Remains Work in Progress, Says

first_img“I am very relieved because you’ve seen the boys were very prepared having worked very hard to make the win seem easy.“I think we should continue this work that we’ve been doing because we can see the profit in it. So the boys have to be super, super fit; that is the only way we can execute our own plans.’ Abd’Allah said.Enyimba had lost the 1st leg 1-0 at Ouagadougou but the People’s Elephant thrashed their Burkinabe opponents 5-0 in the 2nd leg with Reuben Bala and Stanley Dimgba both getting a brace each while Stanley Okorom’s scored his first ever Enyimba goal. However, the Enyimba coach went on to describe the win as ‘one of the most stressful matches’ of his coaching career.“It’s one of the stressful matches I’ve had because having seen the match over there (in Ouagadougou), we were very lucky because it would have been tougher around here.“So the good thing is we saw the team, we came back and worked on our weaknesses and finally you can see the job is done clean. We are happy.”With Sunday’s win over Rahimo, the NPFL Championship have set up another tough clash with Al-Hilal of Sudan and Abd’Allah knows that Enyimba will have to be at its best to beat their opponents.“I think we still have work to do, we still have a lot. We can’t be perfect. Every time we have to work. Hilal are a very good side but not unbeatable. If we are at our best, we will scale through.“Of course playing at home in the 1st leg puts pressure on us to do well from the start but that is the beauty of the game. I am confident we can handle that”, Abdallah stressed during the week.Enyimba will host Al-Hilal at the Enyimba Stadium in the weekend of September 13-15 before travelling to Sudan two weeks later for the return leg.
