Nicholas Wadada is assured of continental football next season after he was part of the Azam FC team that won the Tanzanian FA Cup following their 0-1 win against Lipuli FC on Saturday. It was the first time they were winning the competition.

Wadada played every minute of the game where Obrey Chirwa netted the all-important goal that mattered on the evening in the 64th minute.

The roving right back has played almost in every game for Azam this season since joining them from Vipers SC with sublime displays and enterprising runs on the right flank.

It was Wadada’s third trophy in Azam FC colours after the CECAFA Kagame Cup and Mapinduzi cup.

His next destination is Abu Dhabi to join the rest of Uganda Cranes players who are camped at Park Rotana Hotel ahead of the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations that kicks off on 21st June in Egypt.

In the Tanzanian Vodacom premier league, Azam finished in third place on 75 points 18 behind champions Simba SC.
