Sochima Victor was delighted with his clean sheet in Rivers United’s victory over Tanzanian giants, Young Africans in CAF Champions League first round second leg.

With coach Stanley Eguma deciding to hand his summer signing his full home debut, Sochima was selected ahead of Theophilus Afelokhai, Darlingtin Ovunda and fellow new signing Emmanuel Uzoigwe and the goaltender made a number of important saves as part of a solid foundation that led to his side’s 1-0 victory and 2-0 aggregate win.

Making his reaction while speaking with Lodgexpress in a post-game press conference, Sochima said;

“At first I thank God for his grace and the opportunity to express myself at the biggest club competition in Africa (CAF). I’ve had the dream and it has finally happened.

“I feel really good and excited but not yet fulfilled because the journey has just begun”.

Reacting when quizzed about the competition for a starting berth at the club, Sochima added;

“Its fair to say we are a FAMILY and yeah! there’s a competition among us and its a healthy, cordial and one full of respect, harmony, love.

“We learn alot from each other but can’t write away the fact that we have a big name among us which is Theophilus Afelokhai. Having him as a team-mate is a huge privilege and he earns the respect of the guys.

“To us in the goalkeeping department, he’s more like a role model and we learn alot from him everyday. He is really a great guy and having FOUR quality Gks in your team is a big bonus to the coaches because they can confidently close their eyes and select anyone to man the post”.

Sochima switched to Rivers United this summer from Jigawa Golden Stars after ending last season with 9 clean sheets to his name despite missing a couple of games due to injury.
