Lavatsa keen to make his mark



Gor Mahia forward Edwin Lavatsa hopes that he can make a goal-scoring impact for the national team Harambee Stars in the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Uganda.

The lanky forward was named in coach James Nandwa’s final list of 20 players to travel to the regional showpiece.

At Gor Mahia, he was not a regular starter in the last season but he hopes that that it will not stop him from playing a big part for the Stars. Furthermore, he hopes that the forward players can score goals and that the team can do well in Uganda.

“I am happy to be in the national team. It is a dream come true for me. We are going to a tough place to play some tough teams. It is not going to be easy at all,” he said.

“The team is raring to go and the players are pumped up. We all want to make a good impression. It is not easy at all, but we are confident and will be ready to play when the time comes.”

Other strikers in the squad are Enoch Agwanda and Mike Baraza, players Lavatsa says he respects and admires in equal measure.

“The other strikers are very good. Mike Baraza has been in the national team for a long time and has a lot of experience,” he added.

“Agwanda is also another good player. I know him from the under 23 team, so he is not new to me. It means we have a good striking set-up and hope is that we will score the goals needed.

“If I get my chance I will want to score as many as I can and at the end of the day, lift the side higher.” Lavatsa scored just once in the 2012 Tusker Premier League season for Gor Mahia.
