Nigerian international wing sensation Tony Edjomariegwe played a big role in helping his Moroccan Bolota League side Olympic Club du Safi storm into the Final of the Moroccan Cup for the first time in their history when they pipped hard fighting Difaâ El Jadida 3-0 on penalties at the Stade Ben Ahmed El Abdi (El Jadida Mazghan).
The semi finals was played over two legs and even though OC Safi lost the first game at home by a lone goal, they won the return leg away by the same margin to take the game to penalties after extra time.
During the shoot out, Safi keeper kept out three El Jedida penalties while his team mates converted three to give his side victory.
Speaking to papilonews.co after the game, Edjomariegwe was over joyed with the result and promised to bring back the trophy to the Moroccan sea side town of Safi.
“It is a thing of joy for me to help my team into the Finals,” said the ebony complexioned former 3SC, Nasarawa Utd and Kano Pillars winger. “It wasn’t easy especially as we lost the first leg at home. But we did our best and turned the table on our hosts and we are ready and working very hard to ensure that having come this far, we will win the cup.”
OC Safi face Tangers in the Final scheduled for the 18th of this month.
