SATURDAY’S clinical demolition of Burundi’s Muzinga in the African Champions League first leg qualifying round demonstrated Villa’s ambitions in 2003.
Save for the second minute Toto Michel goal, Villa dominated the entire match and could have managed a cricket score.
Barring a collapse of epic proportions in Bujumbura, the Ugandan champions are safely through to the next round.
Coach Micho Sredojevic must have grinned at the sight of Alex Isabirye, Villa’s in-form player in the early season, scoring right after coming back from injury.
Isabirye converted an 82nd minute header, Villa’s fourth goal of the match.
And with an injury ridden Villa coming off a strenuous week that yielded CECAFA glory and a perfect start to the Champions League campaign, the omens are looking good for the Jogoos.
Edgar Watson is back on form and has been an influential figure in the past one month.
“He’s a wonderful player. On the pitch, he plays like a leader, likes his club and commands others. We will try to protect his form,” said Sredojevic.
Phillip Ssozi is enjoying the form of his life while striker Ekuchu Kasongo is finally delivering the goods.
And how about Vincent Tendwa? The bulky Kenyan has had his critics, but certainly not in the past week.
Tendwa’s priceless strike against Simba secured the CECAFA Paul Kagame Cup for Villa, and the player continued his tale by winning a penalty and scoring Villa’s second goal against Muzinga.
Villa play Mbarara in the Nile Special Super League on Wednesday hoping to maintain their 100% record. Ends
