Nyasa Big Bullets new signing, Muhammad Sulumba, has vowed to bounce back after his penalty miss against Moyale Barracks during a TNM Super League game at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.
Sulumba’s golden opportunity to open his league account vanished into thin air after Moyale goalkeeper, Juma Chikwenga, saved the initial penalty and the resultant rebound.
“I am not the first one to miss a penalty. Of course, it hurts but I have moved on and I will not let this affect my life and career. Most of the fans sympathised with me, but there was a section of supporters that did not swallow it. I know I will score a lot of goals. It is just a matter of time,” Sulumba said.
The former Blantyre United forward, who refused to make his last season’s loan deal permanent at Be Forward Wanderers, scored freely during the pre-season, including a strike against Wanderers in Fam Charity Shield and a hat-trick against Red Lions.
In Wanderers’ camp, seasoned striker, Peter Wadabwa has downplayed his second half goal that earned the Nomads a morale-boosting 2-1 win over his former employers, Silver Strikers on Sunday.
“I want to try and score as many goals as possible, but I am not setting myself targets. And there was nothing like revenge for me. It was just one of those things that happen in football,” said Wadabwa, who came in as a second-half substitute with the game at 1-1.
“The moment the coach said I should come in, I knew that I would score. I even told Khumbo Ng’ambi. You can even verify with him or those who were with me on the technical bench,” he said.
