RIVERS Angels striker, MaryAnn Ezenagu, has promised that the team will bounce back from their disappointing Group B 3-0 drubbing in the hands of Morocco’s ASFAR Club on Saturday at the maiden CAF Women’s Champions League in Egypt.

Sanaa Mssoudy scored the competition’s first hat-trick to hand her side a decisive victory.

The loss leaves the Nigerian champions bottom of their group on goals difference with Kenya’s Vihiga Queens, who lost 1-0 to South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns in their opening encounter.

Angels will next face Sundowns in a must-win game on Tuesday, before rounding off their final group game on November 12 against Vihiga.

A win in their next encounter will give the Port Harcourt-based side hope of proceeding to the semi-finals.

Ezenagu believes they’ve learnt their lessons from the loss and will go all out to get the maximum points in their final group games.

“The loss is an eye-opener to us, that there is more to this competition and we believe that our next game is going to be better,” the striker told CAF media.
