Godfrey Masonda ready for Surestream debut
Former Big Bullets striker Godfrey Masonda says solving goal-scoring problems for Surestream FC would be his ultimate mission when he makes a debut for the struggling TNM Super League debutants.
Masonda, who underwent a heart surgery in South Africa last year, is now set to make his Surestream debut when the rookies face Mafco at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday.
Speaking after undergoing individual training at Kamuzu Stadium on Monday, Masonda, said he was hoping to be part of the team this weekend.
“I have been with the team for the past four weeks and I am now ready to play. My mission is to score a lot of goals and help Surestream stay in the top flight league. Of course pressure seems to be mounting on the team but it’s too early to label the side as relegation candidates,” said the former Big Bullets forward.
Masonda said he was in the right shape and does not suffer any effects after the heart surgery.
“After I recovered, I used to play social football but I stepped up the gear after an opening came from Surestream,” he said.
Surestream have struggled both in defence and striking force. At the back they are vulnerable as they let in silly goals through set pieces and crosses.
Upfront, they are failing to convert most of the chances they create.
The typical example was on Saturday when they created several chances but still failed to score against Azam Tigers who went on to win 2-0 through goals from Yamikani Chester and Peter Cholopi.
Surestream anchor the 15-member table with just a point from five games.
