The Prince flies high in Tanzania

LIFE couldn’t be better for Warriors striker Prince Dube whose injury worries are a thing of the past after two winning goals in successive matches solidified his status as a reliable goal scorer.

At a time when his Tanzanian club Azam FC needed him the most Dube, a former Highlanders striker, made a sensational return to form by scoring in a match against arch rivals Simba SC.

There is no love lost between Azam FC and Simba SC. Their rivalry can be equated to that of the Highlanders and Dynamos enmity in the local football scene.

In fact, Simba SC tried to pry Dube away from Azam FC at some point and the latter responded by offering the Zimbabwean a new and improved deal.

Dube’s 35th minute strike against Simba SC was enough to hand his team the much-deserved win before he found the back of the net again against Ihefu mid-week.

His teammate and compatriot Bruce Kangwa was full of praises for the Warriors striker.

“Everyone has been looking forward to playing with Prince again after a lengthy injury and it’s good that he came back with goals that helped the team.

“We all know the kind of player that Prince is, he is very important to the team and I have no doubt that he will keep scoring for the team,” Kangwa told B-Metro Sport.

Azam are third in the Tanzanian Premier League with 17 points having won five, drawn two and lost the same number from the nine matches they have played so far this season. Young Africans are on top of the log followed by Simba SC.

Dube’s career has been derailed by injuries but the striker appears to be back in form.
In his first season in Tanzania, he found the back of the net 14 times and slightly missed out on the Golden Boot gong.

John Bocco of Simba won the accolade with 16 goals while his teammate Chris Mugalu found the target 15 times that season.
