Ex-SuperSport striker takes Tanzania by storm


Former SuperSport United forward Prince Dube continued his blistering start to life in Tanzania when he scored his second successive brace for Azam FC on Monday.

Dube missed Zimbabwe’s friendly match against Malawi on Sunday after picking a hamstring injury while playing for his club recently.

The former youth international was, however, back in action for his club on Monday, scoring a brace in a 4-0 win over Fountain Gate in a practice fixture.

Before the international break, Dube scored a brace in his team’s 4-2 win over Kagera Sugar.

“He’s enjoying life in Tanzania, he’s settling in well,” said his uncle, Mkhokheli Dube, a former AmaZulu striker.

On Monday, Dube’s two goals were scored a minute apart. At the end of his first full month in Dar es Salaam, the 23-year-old was crowned Tanzania Mainland Premier League Player of the Month for September.

He has so far scored five league goals and two assists for Azam. His efforts have seen his team maintain a 100 percent start to the league, with five out of five league matches won.

Next up for the table topping Azam is a clash with eight placed Mwadui at home on Thursday.
