Vihiga Queens have vowed to bounce back in their second match after they lost 1-0 to South African side Mamelodi Sundowns in their ongoing CAF Women’s Champions League opener in Cairo, Egypt.
Speaking after the loss, skipper Enez Mango said she felt they controlled the match and held a bigger possession percentage but were ultimately punished for failing to capitalize on the chances they created.
“Our next opponents Asfar are a strong side but very much beatable. They have a lot of speed so we must find a way to counter that and work on our finishing,” Mango said.
Her sentiments were echoed by striker Jentrix Shikangwa who advised her teammates to work very hard because they may end up securing deals abroad.
“We really played well yesterday, we created many chances and we didn’t utilize them, our opponents had only one chance and it was a goal, hats something we want to change going forward.
“I regret missing a clear chance in the dying minutes of the match; I could have put the ball into the net only that it fell ono my weaker foot. This tournament is big and many agents are here looking for the good players and you never know, someone can finish the tournament and end up playing in the bigger leagues in Europe,” Shikangwa said.
Action will resume on Monday where the hosts Wadi Degla will take on Malabo Kings as Ghana side Hasaacas will play As Mande from Mali.
Vihiga second match is scheduled for Tuesday November 9 against Asfar of Morocco as River Angels will be taking on South Africa heavyweights Mamelodi.
