Nandwa calls for improved structures



Harambee Stars Cecafa select side coach James Nandwa has urged Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to lay down better structures that will see the national team register positive results in future international assignments – including the forthcoming CHAN qualifiers and the 2016 Olympic qualifiers.

Stars reached the final of the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup for the first time in over a decade and lost it by two goals to one to hosts Uganda Cranes on Saturday.

And after a successful outing in Kampala, speaking on arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the former Rangers tactician lauded the performance of his boys, advocating for their inclusion in the CHAN squad.

The Henri Michel trained side is scheduled to take on Burundi in the first leg tie of the CHAN qualifiers this coming weekend.

“We did very well, I told the boys that there is no big or small matches, both of them are equal. But we need to be composed, stay with the ball and that’s exactly what they did,” said Nandwa.

“We need to do it very first. Proper structures and programmes should be put in place to maintain cohesion and continuity in the national team from junior teams to senior.

“The senior, U23 and U20 teams should be training at least thrice a week and let players stay together until the time we play the Olympic qualifiers. “Even though they cannot play all of them, they need to be in the national team and we need to have a strong team in our country.
