Daniye Primary Finish Third In Nigeria

Daniye Primary School beat Kenyan representatives 4-1 to claim a 3rd spot in the Milo African Championship in Nigeria.

The Mpumalanga school representing South Africa thumped the Kenyans on Saturday to be crowned as number three. The game started slowly as the two teams did not want to take risks in the first 15 minutes.

The South African team had lost 4-1 to hosts Nigeria in the semi-final match on Friday afternoon.

In their match against Kenya, the oganizers requested a water break as temperatures were in the high 30's. Daniye came back from the water break and struck in three quick goals to put Kenya on the back foot and take control of the match.

Daniye were leading by three goals going into the interval, and in the second half they came back with the man-of-the-match Njombo Mabunda, adding another early goal to ensure that Daniye take further charge of the match. The Kenyan's did not give up and found the back of the net with just eight minutes of play time remaining.

“I am happy with the performance from the boys today, we spoke after our loss to Nigeria on Friday and promised each other that we were going to do better as a team. Our preparations ahead of this tournament were possibly not the best when one compares with Nigeria and Ghana, and this is something that will work on for future tournaments,” said Lodrick Khoza, Daniye Primary School U/13 Coach.

“It has been a proud moment for South Africa with boys doing us proud on and off the field, displaying courage and determination away from home. The boys were motivated, and this goes in line with Nestle MILO values of keeping a healthy and wholesome lifestyle,” said Kelly Wainwright, Nestlé South Africa Marketing Manager for Beverages.

Nigeria defeated the 2012 MILO Champions, Ghana 5 - 4 on penalties following a 3-3 deadlock to take the gold medal and the trophy.

Daniye Primary school left Nigeria yesterday and are expected to land in South Africa today.
