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.
