The win puts the Cranes on four points and top of
Group A but how did the individual players perform on the day.
Kawowo Sports Ismael
Kiyonga rates Jonathan McKinstry’s soldiers.
Onyango 6.5: He had little to deal with besides the
save to deny Gabadinho Mhango but provided leadership from the back.
Wadada 6.0: He defended well but offensively, his
crosses were wanting.
Ochaya 6.5: He was defensively astute and the few
times he went forward, his deliveries could have yielded an assist.
Mugabi 5.0: Deployed at his preffered centre back position
and rarely put a foot wrong although the pace and trickery of Yamikani
Jjuuko 5.0: He was calm and collected at the heart
of defence until he was hauled off after suffering an injury.
Aucho 5.5: He combined well with Mike Azira in the
centre of the pack but later suffered an injury that saw him replaced by Taddeo
Azira 7.5: He dictated play with his long and short
range passes and did make the Cranes tick. Arguably, the Man of the Match.
Kizito 5.5: He started slow but improved as the
Cranes gained grip on the game. He created a beautiful chance for Miya which
the latter missed before he was replaced by Allan Okello.
Miya 4.0: His effort and energy was on show but failed to
replicate his club form.
Bayo 6.0: He scored a centre forward’s goal with calmness and
composure to make up for his missed opportunities in the first half.
Okwi 6.0: He opened the scoring with a good goal and he
tracked back to defend when Cranes attacked.
Denis Awany 5.0: Surprisingly left out of the starting
eleven but came on for injured Jjuuko and did well.
Okello 5.0: A nervous debut for the young lad but
rarely troubled the experienced Malawi defence.
Lwanga 5.0: Replaced injured Aucho and did well.
