CECAFA title was long 'overdue'

13 December 2013, 09:00

Nairobi - For some, the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup win on Thursday was long overdue considering the potential and respurces available to Kenya as compared to other countries in the region.

Yet Allan Wanga's goals at a muddy Nyayo National Stadium were celebrated wildly, more a sense of relief than anything else.

" It has been a long time since we last won it. Kenya should not wait too long to win such a trophy, head coach Adel Amrouche quipped.

Having coached minnows Burundi previously, Amrouche understands how much of a gulf in class the two nations have both on and off the pitch.

" The players are there and the resources too. This is a competition we should not struggle much to win, he added.

The hero on the day was in-form AFC Leopards striker Wanga, who once again proved to be the difference between the Stars and many of their opponents this year.

His first goal was a well taken header with the second a fine finsh on the half volley.

" He is in form and when he gets going he can match any centre forward I have seen, Amrouche praised.

" I hope he can keep it that way next year.

The tourney will be remembered for the disorganization as well as the good bits with referees for the final being locked up in a Nairobi hotel before the final due to non-payment of bills but for now, no one will want to remember that.
