The last time coach Salisu Yusuf (below) was in the headlines it was for the wrong reason.
He was caught on tape receiving cash from an undercover investigator from Ghana which triggered a free fall for the NFF coach and resulted in his suspension by the federation.
He is in the headlines again but this time for the right reasons as his new team the Enugu Rangers will lock horns with the Pyramids of Egypt in their Caf Confederation Cup encounter.
As we know Yusuf replaced Benedict Agwu (above), axed by the Rangers earlier in the week after winning just one game in five domestic league matches.
The Flying Antelopes have also been far from impressive in the continental tournament squeaking by minnows Pelican of Gabon and Kara of Togo to grab a group place in the African equivalent of UEFA's Europa League,

The Egyptians, on the other hand, have been solid as a rock. The North Africans have won five of six CAF matches to justify their high payroll and assembly of top-notch players poached from other teams in the Egyptian League. The Pyramids are owned by Saudi Arabian billionaire Turki Al-Sheikh (below) who has literally turned the team into the Manchester City of Africa with the way he spends money
Most impressive in their run is that fact that they won all three games on the road, and there is a strong belief that they can lift the trophy at the first attempt and join the two giants Zamalek and Al Ahly at the zenith of Egyptian Football.
The Enugu faithful (above) in turn hope their team shrugs off their poor domestic form and live up to the expectations on the field as they promise to lend their full voice in support from the rafters at the Cathedral.
Awareness Sports predicts a 2-1 win for the Flying Antelopes.
