PERFECT footwork, crafty moves and coordination helped Simba hand Ihefu a 4-0 blitz in the thrilling Premier League match at the Benjamin Mkapa stadium in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday.

It was crystal clear that Simba used the match to polish their weapons for FC Platinum, their last hurdle towards the group stage of the CAF Champions League.

It was beyond doubt the match drilled well the players ahead of their return leg game against Zimbabwean champions on January 5th, 2021.

The team’s hitman Medie Kagere scored brace in the match Simba managed to reduce the gap with leadersYoung Africans who are now eight points ahead. The win also maintained Simba’s second position with six points above their closest challengers Azam.

Apart from Kagere, Mohammed Hussein and Chris Mugalu were also on the score sheet yesterday.

Simba raced into the lead just 11 minutes after the start and it was Shomari Kapombe who set up Mohammed Hussein before the overlapping defender fired past the forest of Ihefu defenders past goalie Deogratias Munishi ‘Dida’.

Four minutes after the goal, Luis Miquissone created a golden chance for Medie Kagere whose rocket went straight into the yawning net.

Miquissone could stamp the third in 29th minute but his goal was ruled offside by the linesman.

Four minutes to the end of the first half, Kagere netted the third goal from a brilliant counter, with Clatous Chama doing much of the spade work.
