Nandwa revels in win



Kenya’s U23 Coach James Nandwa is delighted with their win over Zanzibar that saw his side qualify for the final of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup.

Nandwa who watched from the touchline as they scored all the penalties to progress after twice pegging back Zanzibar lauded his players for their effort.

“I told them that they have to play their hearts out and they went out there and played as we planned.”

“I was here in 2008 as the assistant coach when Kenya reached the final against Uganda. Now I’m here and I wanted to achieve the same feat. It’s feels good.”

He also commented on what drives the team as they have managed to secured a final berth.

“I chose my players for this match and knew they can deliver. The game was tough but what they need is support to ensure continuity in the squad.”

“If we face Uganda in the final, we’ll we are ready. We know what is at stake during that match but all I can say is we will not let them defeat us.”

“This is the third time I’m in the final and I’m happy as a coach to have guided my boys this far.”
