Wanga ends goal-scoring drought for Azam
Harambee Stars striker Allan Wanga says he wants to bang in more goals after ending a three-month scoring drought for his Tanzanian club Azam on Monday.
Wanga scored Azam’s winning goal in a 2-1 victory over FC Panone in a domestic cup round of 16 match in Moshi.
“Staying for that long without scoring obviously affects any striker. I am now in the mood to bang in more goals and help the club win the championship this season. I wish to thank the technical bench for retaining the faith in me,” the former El Merreikh striker told azamfc.co.tz.
Wanga’s all round performances in the match earned praised from coach Stewart Hall. The forward is now well-placed to start the club’s forthcoming assignments against Yanga SC in the league before taking on South African side Bidvest Wits in the Caf Africa Confederation Cup.
Besides Wanga, the other forwards in the club’s potent strike force are Ivorian Kipre Tchetche, Burundi sensation Didier Kavumbaga and local boy John Bocco.
Azam, which defeated Gor Mahia to win the Cecafa Club Championship in Tanzania last year, are also considered favourite to win the league title this term.
