Wanga eyes success over Egypt
29 August 2014, 08:08
Nairobi - Allan Wanga believes Harambee Stars will have
a better spell under Ugandan coach Bobby Williamson starting with their
match away to Cairo against Egypt on Aug. 30.
Wanga, a striker with Sudan side El Mereikh, said he is happy the
coach is giving the team a new look as the country struggles to remain
meaningful in the regional and continental football, especially after
being eliminated from the 2015 Africa Nations Cup in Morocco.
"I have to say that Williamson knows our football and has a good
record seeing what he did for Uganda. Competition for places in the
national team will be high and I do not expect an automatic selection,"
said Wanga, who arrived Thursday in Nairobi to link up with the team.
Wanga is fresh from helping his side beat APR of Rwanda to lift the regional Cecafa Kagame Cup in Kigali last Sunday.
"I have just completed one month with El Mereikh and am happy my
performance has been great. I have played two matches in the domestic
league and scored twice and also did well in Cecafa Kagame Cup, where my
goal helped us win the title," he added.
"That will not be important anymore as we head to Cairo, but I have
trust in the team that has been selected by the coach and we will do
well to prosper," said Wanga.
Wanga is among the few foreign based players in the Kenya line- up.
He confirmed his availability to Williamson while in Kigali during the
Cecafa Kagame Cup.
