Chiukepo: Awful feeling after misisng penalty which would have sent Bullets through

Bullets should have finished the job and  progress to the next stage of the Caf Champions League  when they led  in the  55th minute  through Chiukepo Msowoya.

Msowoya missed a golden opportunity to seal the victory for Bullets  in the 88th minute when they were awarded a penalty but his kick was saved by Gor veteran keeper Boniface Oluoch before forcing the match into penalties as it was a 1-1 stalemate as Gor Mahia had won the first leg with an identical score line.

Gor Mahia took time to settle into the game; allowing Bullets to dictate the first quarter of the opening half. Only George Odhiambo came close within the first five minutes.

Bullets won a dangerous free-kick from the left side, but BOluoch was on a high alert to parry the ball to safety.

That’s what a game of football gives, one wins and another looses so we have to accept it was not our day. We should not condemn Chiukepo or the Coach. We lost the game as bullets simply because our friends did it better than us so no finger pointing if anything lets blame the whole team for failure.

Zoona ndizakuti the game tactics were wrong. The Coach should have taken a gamble of starting Fisher Kondowe. I know most of you will argue that he is a spent force. That is true. The remains that as the probability of going into Penalties were high, I guess Fisher is a master of his own. Secondly , yes Mike Mkwate could not march the physical fitness of the built Kenyans, but the boy is a wonder kid on a sunny day.

Chiukepo is useless. I wonder why national team picks him. He is a rush rush player. Tired legs. Bullets it is time to groom young players. Don’t follow wanderers model of relying on nkhalamba
