Substitutes credited for Kenya’s win against Zimbabwe

Kenya Simbas head coach Ian Snook credited the substitutes’ impact in their 45-36 Africa Gold Cup win against Zimbabwe in Nairobi last Saturday. 

Zimbabwe rallied from a 16 point half-time deficit to take a shock 36-33 lead only for second half substitute and debutant Dalmus Chituyi to strike a late brace that earned Kenya her second win of the campaign.

KCB quintet of Moses Amusala, Peter Karia, Curtis Lilako, Oliver Mang’eni, Martin Owillah and Max Kang’eri of Homeboyz also came on as second half substitutes.

“The boys who came off the bench did a good job to help make the comeback. This win really motivates us and the World Cup dream is very much on,” Snook said.


Snook further reiterated the importance of their next match against Uganda on 7 July in Nairobi.

“We go again next week against Uganda to try bag a win and stay in the competition.”

The fixture doubles as the return leg of the Elgon Cup with Kenya enjoying a 34-16 lead from the first leg staged in Kampala.

Snook will reveal his match day 23 for the Uganda clash in midweek.
