Sunshine Stars will be locked in a semifinal clash in the Orange Caf Confederation Cup on Saturday in Tunis live on SuperSport.

The Nigerian side will face Club Africain of Tunisia live on SuperSport Select from 6.45pm.

Sunshine Stars go to the Stade Olympique d'El Menzah in Tunis with a goal deficit after losing the reverse game on your World of Champions.

Striker of Sunshine Stars, Ukeyima Akombo recognises that he and his colleagues will have to up the ante against the Tunisians.

"It's unfortunate that we lost the first leg of this game and in our home ground. But we still have a good chance and I am confident that we can beat Club Africain in Tunis and qualify for the final.

"Remember Sunshine Stars have a team of very, very good players. So it is not a matter of whether we have potentials or not. I am confident this team can beat Club Africain with the type of players we have.

"This is a game we must win. It has been a bad period for football in our country and we have a task to make our fans happy by giving them something to cheer," said Akombo.

Akombo will line up with the likes of attacking partner, Ibrahim Ajani, Atanda Sakibu, Godfrey Oboabona, Cletus Itodo, Moses Ocheje, James Moses, Dele Olorundare, Osasco Precious and Ofem Inah for this important game on SuperSport.
