  • Simba 7-0 Shooting Ruvu

Uganda Cranes forward Emmanuel Arnold Okwi made a perfect rehearsal for the upcoming games against Egypt with an outstanding individual performance for his Tanzanian club Simba.

Okwi scored four goals in Simba’s 7-0 demolition of Shooting Ruvu on Saturday evening in Dar es Salaam.

The forward who made a return to the club from SC Villa in June opened the scoring in the 17th minute. He doubled the advantage 5 minutes later before completing the hat trick 9 minutes before the half way mark.

Simba led 5-0 going to the mandatory half time break with Kichuya and Luizio’s goals coming in 43rd and 45th minutes respectively.

Okwi returned to goal scoring business in the 52nd minute for his club’s 6th on the day.

Eresti Nyoni wrapped up the red letter evening for Simba in the 81st minute.

Okwi is expected to fly to Uganda on Sunday alongside club mate Murushid Jjuuko for Uganda Cranes duty.
