Agwanda hopes to impress
Sony Sugar striker Enoch Agwanda hopes that he can make the right impression if he is named in the final Harambee Stars squad to travel to Uganda for Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.
Agwanda is part of a 25-man squad currently in camp preparing for the showpiece, which kicks off over the weekend. However, only 20 players will travel, meaning five will be dropped by head coach James Nandwa on Tuesday evening after the final training session.
Agwanda says competition for places is high but hopes that he has done enough to convince head coach Nandwa that he deserves to travel and if so, make a good impression while on national duty.
“Competition for places is very high here and everyone is working very hard,” said Agwanda.
“There are many players here who have the pedigree to perform at the highest level and so a place in the team is not guaranteed. That aside, I hope to have made the right impression on the coach so that I can travel.”
“I think that I can offer a lot to the team if given a chance to play. The team is filled with good players, so it is not easy to say you are guaranteed a place,” he said.
If he travels, Agwanda hopes that he can be among the top scorers in the tournament.
“Playing there for your country is a huge opportunity to make a name,” he said. It is the biggest stage in the region and all the best players from the other countries too will be there. Testing yourself against the best is always a great thing and hopefully, I will get the chance.
“If there, I will aim for the top scorer. It is a long time since Kenya did well there and I hope that we can change that. The squad, in my opinion, is good enough to win the title and hopefully it will end up that way,” he added.
