Atudo happy with Confed Cup progress



Tanzanian Premier League side Azam FC settled for a barren draw with Liberian top-tier team Barrack Young Controllers II (BYC II) in the return leg of their Caf Confederations Cup qualifiers on Saturday.

With Azam having won 2-1 in the first leg match played in Liberia, the draw was enough to usher them into the next round of qualifiers.

This means that Azam is the only team from East Africa in the Continentals after others such as Tusker, who were featuring in the Champions League, and Gor Mahia, representing Kenya in the Confederations fell by the wayside.

Kenyan defender Jockins Atudo, who is currently signed to Azam, was happy with the aggregate win and hoped that they will stay in the tournament to the end.

“We have been playing as a solid unit throughout the qualifiers and it is because of this that we have been able to maintain a decent performance even in away matches. We hope to keep up this performance and hopefully make the finals,” said Atudo.

Azam will now play FAR Rabat of Morocco in a two round qualifier taking place between 19 and 21 April and the return between 3 and 5 May.
