When she stepped off the bench with ice cold feet to slot in an extra time penalty to send Kenya into the penultimate round of the qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, 17-year old Gentrix Shikangwa did not mince her words.
Confident as ever, with the roar and confidence of a lioness, Shikangwa declared; ‘We will stop at nothing to qualify for the Olympics. We have the confidence and we don’t fear anyone. We have beaten Ghana and this has given us confidence. We want to be in the Olympics.”
Kenya’s Harambee Starlets beat giants Ghana 1-0 after extra time to book a ticket to the third round of qualification against Zambia.
