Nyangweso, speaking to Capital Sport believes the pint-sized goal poacher will play a massive role for his side this season, especially partnering up with the on-form Samuel Onyango as the soldiers look to break their trophy drought.“I am very pleased with how he has performed because he has stayed for long without playing and coming back to score four goals in three matches is something great. Not many players can do that after being out of action for a while,” Nyangweso noted of the striker.“His experience has come of age and he is back to the old Waruru I know because I was with him from 2011 and 2012 when he was the top scorer,” added the military man.Waruru had been off the team for close to two seasons after going for military duty and his return has come in timely especially after the soldiers lost the services of striker John Mark Makwatta who left for a professional stint in Zambia.Ulinzi Stars players celebrate one of their goals during the 5-1 win over Mathare United in a Kenyan Premier League match on April 23, 2017.

We took our chances and that is what I have been asking from the players every day. Hopefully this will spur us on in the upcoming matches and entire season,” Nyangweso added.His side will be taking on the long trip to Mumias where they take on hosts Kakamega Homeboyz at the Mumias Complex on Wednesday.The soldiers have never beaten Homeboyz in Premier League history with all four matches they have faced each other in ending in draws, three of them goalless. They will be expecting a similar tough battle as they aim to keep their unbeaten record clean and Nyangweso is confident they will get a first win.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ulinzi Stars striker Stephen Waruru listens to words from head coach benjamin Nyangweso during their Kenyan premier League match against Mathare United on April 23, 2017.

I know it sounds crazy because the front three are amazing but I think they need another to test the current front three,” Kewell told Sky Sports following Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Genk in the Champions League.”I have nothing against Origi, I think he’s a fantastic player and he does his part. He has scored some important goals and he’s been a fantastic squad player because the front three are a solid front three. “Mane is on fire at the moment, Salah has been, but he isn’t at the moment. Firmino, even though I think he does a lot of the dog work for Mane and Salah, he still doesn’t score [enough].”Are there players out there? Of course there is. I would have loved to have seen Griezmann there. I think he would have been fantastic. I think he’s that type of player.”
Deion Sanders was back at Florida State yesterday to interview Jalen Ramsey and speak to the team. After “Prime Time” toured the FSU facilities and mingled with the members of the program, he clearly came away impressed. This morning, Sanders tweeted that the facilities were “unbelievable” and that recruits should sign there to experience the best. What i seen today @fsu @FSU_Football facilities were UNBELIEVABLE. Why wouldn’t a kid want to sign & experience the best. I’m Proud. #Truth— Deion Sanders (@DeionSanders) March 31, 2016An endorsement like this can’t hurt Florida State’s already stellar recruiting.
