Kariobangi Sharks winger James Mazembe is hoping that 2018/19 will be a good season for him after twice across the two legs in the Kenya U23 tie against Mauritius in the 2019 AFCON U23 qualifiers.

Mazembe who joined Sharks straight from school at the start of 2018 stated that he is looking forward to the task that lay ahead with both his club and the national team and will hope he can replicate his national team heroics at club level.

Two Goals

“It felt good to score two goals in both ties but I know there is still a lot of work that I can do. The season is almost here and we have a lot of games that we will feature in. There is competition for places in the team and I have no option but to work hard to earn a place. I’m looking forward to it (new season),” Mazembe said.

Mazembe is also aware of the task that comes with representing the nation and admits they expect tougher matches in the coming qualifying stages.

“The win over Mauritius means we can beat any team but as a group we are aware of sterner tests in the coming games. We just have to keep our foot on the ground and hope we can make it to the Olympics come 2020,” he added.

Mazembe will hope to be part of the Sharks team when they take on Djibouti side Arta Solar7 of Djibouti in the CAF Confederations Cup later this month.
