Following the win, ENPPI are through to the round of 16 where they will face Cercle de Bamao of Mali.

" I must thank my players for the win. We did not play well but reaching the round of 16 was our major aim," coach Hossam Al Badri told SuperSport.com.

"Our league was cancelled and that affected us but we have the win and that was what we wanted," he added.

"We need to put the win behind us and start preparations for Cercle de Bamao which will be another tough game.
