Malkia Striker’s veteran setter Jane Wacu is upbeat about their chances in the African Nations Championship which serves off on Saturday in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

The Malkia Strikers will know their group opponents later on Friday after a technical meeting. The tournament is expected to be closely contested.

However, before they can get their act on the court, Wacu who is part of the 12- woman squad in the Cameroonian capital said that they are relaxed and ready for the litmus test.

“So far so good; we have finished our first training and we are looking forward to other sessions,” Wacu, who plies her professional trade in Seychelles, told Citizen Digital in an online interview.

The Malkia Strikers landed in Yaoundé on Thursday mid-day and checked into Hotel Mansel in the country’s capital. On Friday morning, the girls had an intensive training at Stade de Palas to polish their grey areas.

Technical Director David Lung’aho also expressed confidence that the team will tackle whichever opponent thrown their way.
