Simba SC striker Chris Mugalu has hailed the contribution of midfielder Clatous Chama after he notched his first goal for the club on Sunday.
Mugalu, who signed for the Wekundu wa Msimbazi from Zambia’s Lusaka Dynamos, was on target as Simba roared to a 4-0 win over Biashara United in a Mainland Premier League match played at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium.
Simba grabbed the lead through Chama, the 2019/20 Most Valuable Player, who was in the right place to receive a pass from Luis Miquissone and launched a low drive that beat Daniel Mgore in Biashara’s goal.
Chama then scored the second goal in the 26th minute as the champions looked more dominant and determined to beat Francis Baraza’s side, before Meddie Kagere, who was making his first start in this campaign, riffled home the third in the 52nd minute.
Am delighted to score my first ever Premier League goal for @SimbaSCTanzania tonight, thanks to maestro @ClatousCC who flipped the ball for me to finish.— Chris Mugalu (@strikermugalu) September 20, 2020

Kagere was withdrawn in the 78th minute with new signing Mugalu taking his place, and it took the DR Congo star seven minutes to grab his debut goal, which put the issue beyond Biashara’s doubt.
Mugalu has now taken to his social media pages to praise Chama for helping him score his first goal for the Reds.
“I am delighted to score my first ever Premier League goal for Simba,” Mugalu wrote. The goal was courtesy of maestro Chama, who flipped the ball for me to finish,
“More to come in God’s grace.”
Chama has also responded by tweeting: “Congratulations my brother.”
Meanwhile, Chama has thanked Simba fans after he hit 250,000 likes on Instagram.
“Yesterday [Sunday] we were on fire and today [Monday] I want to thank you all for the 250,000 followers on Instagram, I will talk more later.”
It was Simba’s first match in Dar es Salaam having played their first two league matches away to promoted Ihefu FC whom they beat 2-1 before a 1-1 draw against Mtibwa Sugar.
Simba – with seven points from three matches - will now shift focus to their next opponents - Gwambina FC on September 26 - while Biashara United will look to pick themselves up when they play Ruvu Shooting on September 27.
