Ulinzi Stars march on in Abidjan



Ulinzi Stars, Kenya’s representatives in the ongoing African Military Games in Ivory Coast, on Wednesday qualified for the semifinals of the event after seeing off Angola 3-1 in an entertaining last-eight tie at the Parc des Spor Stadium in Abidjan.

The side took the initiative through an Evans Amuoka brace early in the match before midfielder Stephen Waruru added the third goal to seal the win.

The Angolan snatched a consolation goal in the second half through a penalty but it was not enough to inspire them to make a comeback in the match.

The Kenyan Premier League soldiers have been on form during this year’s edition of the regional tournament, despite starting with a 3-3 draw in the opener against Bukina Faso.

Ulinzi then managed a win against Gambian military side 2–0 on Saturday 8 December at the same stadium. Amuoka brace’s on Wednesday was his second of the tournament, having scored both goals against Gambia.

Mali’s military side now await Ulinzi Stars in the semis, as hosts Ivory Coast take on Cameroon in the other last four tie.

Ulinzi Stars, domestic league champions in 2010; should be motivated to claim some silverware after missing out on the Kenyan Premier League trophy. They finished sixth in the standings with 45 points, behind champions Tusker FC, Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards, Sofapaka FC and Thika United.
