Irish-based Kenyan striker eyes a Harambee Stars call up with a promise of goals.

As Kenyans, we are not short of talent, most specifically in the football world. Dennis Oliech and Michael Olunga are two of the many prolific strikers we have offered to the international football world.Of course, there are many others, but one we need to look forward to is Wilson Waweru. A 20-year old Kenyan striker who is currently plying his trade in Ireland with Galway United. If you were to doubt how impressive he is, then all you need to know is that Waweru made his first team debut for Galway United at only 17 years old. Although Weweru is still finding his foot in football, an interview with Mozzart Sport has made it clear what he has planned for Kenya in his football career. Here is part of his candid interview with Mozzart Sport. "Currently, my short-term goals are to keep trying to score and add to my goal tally for the season, helping Galway United secure promotion to the Ireland Premier Division with us currently sitting second in the table. I hope to be playing football at a higher level next season and to represent the Kenyan national team."

"My long-term goals are to be an important striker for the Kenyan national team and also to play in a top European league in front of thousands of fans on a weekly basis. Hopefully I can achieve this with hard work and patience as I’m still developing and building on my positive start to my professional career." 

Will Waweru be the striker to form a deadly partnership with Michael Olunga in the days to come? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
