Wolves walk over Sao Tome’s club in CAF Champions League
Ex-Falcons captain, Omagbemi, disappointed
For years, US-based former Super Falcons captain, Florence Omagbemi, was looking forward to watch one of her favorite Nigerian clubs, Warri Wolves, in action.
The CAF champions league first round, first leg game between Wolves and their opponent from Sao Tome and Principe would have provided Omagbemi such opportunity yesterday, but the visitors failed to show up.
“I was really looking forward to the game to show my support to Warri Wolves because for years I have not watched them in action,” Omagbemi told The Guardian yesterday.
“I had promised my former coach, Sam Okpodu, who is the chief coach of Warri Wolves and my friend Edema Fuludu (General Manager), that I was coming to the stadium to support them. All the same, I wish Warri Wolves the best in their subsequent games,” Omagbemi said.
Top officials of Delta state government and fans of the Sea-siders had invaded the stadium in their Valentine outfit, hoping to see Wolves tear the visitors apart.
After the walk over ceremony performed by the match officials, the fans and supporters of Warri Wolves were entertained with a friendly match between Wolves and Rangers of Enugu.
