“Day one was fantastic for us. We managed to hit our targets,. The first game against PNG was definitely going to be important for us. Once we won that we just focused on winning against Mexico so that we could qualify for the quarter finals.  The last group game against South Africa was always going to be tough but we stuck to our patterns of defense and took our try scoring chances when they came,” said Wambua.

“Our focus now shifts to recovery protocols before we meet Argentina in the cup quarters tomorrow morning, ” he concluded. The Lionesses play Argentina at 6.36am East Africa Time on Friday morning.
