Standard Liege of Belgium defender-cum-midfielder, Uche Agbo has declared that he and his teammates will go all out for victory in Thursday’s UEFA Europa League match against Akhisar of Turkey.
Though Agbo admits his side’s opponents are not well known, the former Enyimba of Aba and Granada of Spain utility player admitted they cannot afford to underrate their opponents.
Nonetheless, footballlive.ng can report that Agbo is now holding unto confidence gained from last weekend’s victory against KV Oostende in the Belgian League as the right tonic to boost his side’s morale for Thursday’s match, as Liege are now fifth on the domestic log.
Agbo declared: “We are determined as a team to conquer our opponent in our second match of the group stage of the Europa Cup.
“We are in top shape as a team for the group stage match come Thursday. We are battle ready.
“Presently, we are in fifth position as far the Belgian Elite League is concerned.
“Our victory over Oostende gave us passage to the fifth position, from which we are pushing harder to end the season among top three.
“Personally, I am also prepared to give my very best come Thursday in the UEFA Europa League.”
