Mwaungulu: I wasn’t surprised to see the ball inside the net


Patrick Mwaungulu celebrated his birthday in style as his cool finish in the second half secured FCB Nyasa Big Bullets a 2-0 win over Mzuzu City Hammers at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.

The midfielder, who turned 22 on the day, scored a stunner, his third consecutive goal in this new TNM Super League campaign straight from a corner kick.

After his Player of the Match performance against the Mzuzu-based visitors, Mwaungulu told club media what he was thinking when he took the set piece.

“I had no doubts that the ball was going in. I spotted the goalkeeper [Eddie Jamu] out of his line and I had to think very quickly before hitting the ball with power. The moment I kicked the ball, my gut feeling was positive, and I wasn’t surprised to see the ball inside the net,” shared the 2023 Player of the Season.

He also commented on winning his first POTM accolade this season: “I am not looking at this game only. My target is to continue pushing and improving so that I can give the best of my abilities to my team. It will not be an easy season, but if we strive to do well, we can overcome the challenges we’ve been encountering this season. We will get better. It’s just a matter of time.”

On the tough start to the season, the Bullets Reserves graduate, who created several chances against Hammers, said it was expected that teams would be coming very hard on The People’s Team after winning every domestic silverware last term.

“It’s something we anticipated because every team will be coming so hard on us to prove a point since we won everything last season. It won’t be easy, but we are champions. We have done this before, and we will fight to the end for our crown. As players, we will try our level best to collect points regardless of the circumstances at hand.”

The midfielder has scored four goals and provided one assist in six league matches this new campaign.
