Nandwa cautious ahead of Cranes clash



Harambee Stars coach James Nandwa is keeping his cards close to his chest as he charges prepare to face Uganda Cranes in the final of the 2012 Cefafa Tusker Cup.

Nandwa is aware of the Cranes’ abilities as the team has had a perfect record going into the final and he was unwilling to take any chances.

As a result, Nandwa has urged his players to focus on the game with all departments needing to be at their best to neutralise the opponents who are known for their swift counter attacks.

Nandwa also reiterated that they will go to the match with a cautious approach but at the same time urged his players to go for early goals.

"Uganda Cranes have been one of the best teams in this year's tournament and we have to be very cautious when going to the match. They have very swift players whom we intend to neutralise and I will be happy if the players employ a different approach to the game as this will be a litmus test for us."

"Though we respect the Cranes we are going to the match with an open mind knowing that we can also emerge as the champions since our rivalry has been there for a long time and we intend to put the records straight this time round," the soft spoken Nandwa told supersport.com.

Kenya clash with Uganda Cranes in the final slated for Mandela National stadium ,Namboole from 6pm live on SS9East.
