Kahata helps Simba overcome Azam to set date with rivals Yanga in cup semis


Kenyan international midfielder Francis Kahata provided an assist as Simba SC beat Azam 2-0 in a Domestic Cup game played on Wednesday evening at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

Kahata assisted John Bocco to open the scoring just before the break and Cleotus Chama’s second half goal sealed the win for Wekundu Wa Msimbazi.


The Kenyan international, however, says the game was not easy and they had to fight hard to secure the win.

“It was one of the toughest games I have played this season but I think we were very motivated since we had already won the league coming into this match. We are very keen to make it a double by winning the Domestic Cup as well,” Kahata told Nairobi News.

Kahata says the team has been in good shape despite the coronavirus pandemic halting leagues globally, the Tanzanian Premier League included.

“The coach was sending programs throughout the period while players were also training individually and that is why we have settled in fast, after the competitions resumed,” he said.

Simba will face bitter rivals Yanga in the semifinal on Sunday July 12, with Division One side Sahare All Stars facing Namungo FC in the other semifinal a day earlier. The final will be played early in August.
