Simba Captain John Bocco has congratulated fellow striker Emmanuel Okwi for scoring the winning goal against Azam and taking all the three points.
Okwi scored the only goal in Simba’s 1-0 win against Azam on Wednesday, a win that cemented Simba’s place at the top of the League with a 7 point difference to second placed Yanga.
Speaking to Goal, Bocco who had a hard time in the match after being tightly marked by Azam’s two central defenders Agrrey Morris and Yakubu Mohamed, said that sharpness shown by Okwi gives the team hope of winning the Premium League title this season.
"I have never seen a sharper striker in the Tanzanian League like Okwi, he is a dangerous player that need tight marking so that you can stop him from scoring. And if he continues to score game after game, Simba will win the Premium League this season” Said Bocco
Okwi currently leads the goal scoring charts with 13 goals followed by Obrey Chirwa from defending champions Yanga who is second 10 goals.
