Chapa Dimba All Stars end Spain tour with big win
Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom All Stars’ Spain tour came to an end on Wednesday night with girls’ side registering heavy win while boys’ counterpart settled for a draw.
The ladies thrashed Tecnofutbol Ladies 6-0 in their final friendlies while the boys settled for a goalless draw with Tarragona aka Nastic Tarragona. The team entered the match, after having a tour at the RCD Espanyol Stadium in the morning as part of their training program.
The boys’ draw comes two days after edging out Barcelona side, Sant Gabriel 2-1 in their second friendly match. The result meant that they have only lost once in the three build-up matches when they went down 3-5 to second division side Reus Deportiu in their first friendly match.
The girls bounced back with Ndhiwa Queens starlet Ivonne Ogada netting twice to inspire the girls’ side after a 2-0 defeat against Barcelona side, Sant Gabriel girls on Tuesday night. The girls only lost one match in their three build-up matches they played.
The 32 players were scouted by La Liga coaches from across the eight regions of Kenya. The team left Nairobi on 6th May 2019 for a ten-day training camp in Barcelona, Spain. During their stay in Spain, other than their regular training, they watched a live match between Barcelona and Getafe at Camp Nou stadium, had an opportunity to tour the cosmopolitan city of Spain, Barcelona and played against three La Liga division two youth teams.
The team departs for Kenya tonight, Thursday, where they will join their respective teams ahead of the national finals set for June in Meru.
