Kenya relishing Cameroon challenge

17 June 2015, 15:28

Nairobi - Kenya's women's team are relishing the challenge of taking on Cameroon in their Africa Nations Championships volleyball semi-final at the the Kasarani Gymnasium in Nairobi on Wednesday.

Malkia Strikers are firm favourites to advance to the final - where they will face either Senegal or Algeria - but head coach David Lung’aho is not underestimating the opposition. 

“Cameroon have been improving game by game and it is going to be a fantastic challenge," he told Standarmedia.co.ke 

But we are motivated by the fact that we have come up against stronger teams before and we know how to handle any of our opponents,” Lung’aho said. 

“We have worked on our weaknesses during the rest day and I believe we can qualify for the finals so long as we remain focused, play to our potential and give it all.” 

Kenyan are in fine form and haven't dropped a set in the championship yet. The players are highly motivated to reach the final where they are hoping to win their ninth African title.

“It feels great to have won all our group matches without dropping a single set," said middle blocker Ruth Jepngetich.

"But we will not be carried away by that performance. Our target is to retain the cup and that is why we are taking one game at a time.”
