Football | Cecafa Womens Championship

Nandwa proud after win



Coach James Nandwa was ecstatic after Kenya beat Malawi Flames a 1-0 to progress to the last four of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup in Kampala on Tuesday.

Speaking of the day’s performance, Nandwa expressed pride in the team, noting that they had done well to lift the name of the country high.

“We came into the tournament at a disadvantage, having had very few days to train as a unit. We went on to lose the first match but we managed to pick up after the second match,” said Nandwa.

“Making the semi-finals is a big achievement by itself and I must indeed say that I am very proud of the team for their commitment.”

Of the semis, where the Stars are set to meet Zanzibar, Nandwa said that they will apply themselves as they did against Malawi, steering clear of any mistakes.

“The finals are now within reach and I am confident that the team I have in my charge will get past the upcoming challenge and represent the country in the last stage of the tournament. Who knows, we might end up taking the title home,” he added.

Kenya were in Group A, together with Uganda, South Sudan and Ethiopia. They progressed alongside hosts Uganda.
