Coach Poulsen revels in Rwanda win



Tanzania Taifa Stars coach Kim Poulsen was a delighted man after his team produced a clinical performance to demolish Rwanda 2-0 at the Lugogo Stadium in Kampala on Monday.

Poulsen heaped praise on his players describing them as hard working, dedicated and true fighters adding that they had made Tanzania proud by qualifying for the semifinals of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup.

He observed that his tactical and technical approach to the game ensured Rwanda were completely locked out of the game and barely had a sniff at his team’s goal.

"I am delighted with our performance and very impressed with my playing unit who followed my instructions to the letter. This was a tough game but our tactical and technical awareness ensured we shut out Rwanda who failed to respond as we hit them on the counter attacks."

"

I believe we have killed the myth that we can only win at home as this was a superb performance away from home and I believe we can go all the way to the final and eventually clinch the coveted trophy here in Uganda," an elated Poulsen told supersport.com.
