Nandwa delighted with young stars



Harambee Stars coach James Nandwa has lauded the performance of the younger players in the Harambee Stars win over Libya.

The Stars scored a famous but much-needed win over the North Africans in Tunisia, with a stylish 3-0 victory.

Dennis Oliech and Paul Were were on target for the visitors as they shocked the Libyan and Tunisian support.

According to Nandwa though, the performance of the young players in the squad was what set up the win and he believes that they are the country’s present and future.

“It was a very good win and a performance that was perfect. Our first half display was the best I have seen since I took over as it was fantastic,” he said.

“We owned the first half and controlled it completely. We have struggled to score goals but this time we did it and early, which gave us a platform to play well. The Libyans only came into the game in the second half and even then we defended well. We showed maturity and will to fight and I am very proud of all that we were able to conjure. Hopefully, we will carry this into the future games,” he said.

As for the young players and their place in the side, he believes they deserve a chance now.

“The young players will only get a chance when we give them and that is the reality. All of us have to help them grow and give them a place in the team. “Now that they have shown over a period of time that they can play well, we have to give them the places. The future is now.”
