Wolayta should keep rolling


It looks like Wolayta Dicha’s wild ride will last further than the preliminary rounds as they play the decisive return leg match at Hawassa International Stadium against humble Young Africa from Tanzania.
Relegated to the Confederation Cup, Saint George faces a strong adversary from the Congo Republic staging the first leg in Addis Ababa.
Damping out five time African champion Zamalek after a penalty shootout the debutants under inspirational head coach Zenebe Feseha are in pole position to get through this final qualification round. They have been handed a modest East African side relegated to the Confederation Cup after a 2-1 aggregate defeat to little known Botswana side Township Rollers.
They have strong home supporters, team spirit, discipline and commitment as well as home advantage; Dicha is on the verge of writing a new successful history. An inspiring head coach, lethal strike force through Bezabeh Meleyo and Jaco Arafat and amazing goalie Wondwosen Germew, Dicha has all the fire power to demolish Young Africa.
On the other hand Saint George returns to Congo for a second successive season last time kicking out AC Leopards from the competition. Though Vaz Pinto’s mentorship is admired and the impact is said to result in the long run, “The Horse Riders” current form makes the visitors favorites to get past the stage. Saint George is relegated from the Champions league while Cara Brazzaville reached the stage thrashing big name sides from Ghana and Tunisia.
