Nairobi Queens arrive in Tunisia

10 October 2014, 12:10

Nairobi - The Nairobi Water Queens handball club has arrived in Tunisia ahead of the 36th African Clubs championships.

The Kenyan champions will start their campaign against Etoile club from the Democratic Republic of Congo before taking on Angolan champions Premero De Agosto club in their second match of the championship.

Although the team faces stern challenges at the tournament, head coach Jack Sandan insisted that his side can rise to the challenge.

"These are the best clubs in the continent but we are not afraid of them,” he told Standard Digital.

"If we convincingly win one match in our pool, we will definitely be in the quarterfinals. We want to take one match at a time,” he added.

Group A comprise all-time defending champions Petro Athletico of Angola, Africa Sport from Ivory Coast, FAP of Cameroon, HC Nuru and Mikishi, both of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

"The inclusion of two key players in the team, Brenda Aliviza and Alice Olwande will boost the squad. We do not have any other choice but record just one win match in the championship," added Sandan.
