Ifeanyi Anaemena targets domestic double with Enyimba

The rock-solid defender disclosed that the People’s Elephant are in the hunt for the Cup title after their recent league triumph

Enyimba centre-back Ifeanyi Anaemena said that they are motivated for a domestic double ahead of their Federation Cup Round of 32 encounter against Smart City of Lagos on Wednesday.

Anaemena will miss Wednesday's Cup tie due to a knock he suffered during the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Super Six play-offs but he is backing his teammates to overcome the challenge of the Lagos-based outfit.

After securing the league title, the defender has set his sight on a domestic double with Usman Abdallah's men.

"We are going to take each game as it comes and it is our determination to proceed to the next round," Anaemena told Goal.

"We are happy that we have won the league title but we will be delighted to make it a double with the Aiteo Cup. It is another trophy after our hearts.

"I won't be available for the game because I got knocks in Lagos which I am yet to recover from. We have a team that can beat any team."
