Speaking after the match, Ambaka said, “I’m coming back from injury and I’m just happy to represent the country in the World Cup. “We executed well, got the three tries. We were also a little bit rusty. That is expected in the first game and we just hope to polish up in the next game.

Shujaa defeated Tonga 19-0 to reach the round of 16 in Rugby World Cup 7s action at the Cape Town Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa on Friday 9 September 2022.

Sammy Oliech converted tries from Willy Ambaka and Nelson Oyoo for a 14-0 lead at the interval before Vincent Onyala scored late in the second half to set up a clash against Argentina at 5.45pm this evening.

Speaking after the match, Ambaka said, “I’m coming back from injury and I’m just happy to represent the country in the World Cup.

“We executed well, got the three tries. We were also a little bit rusty. That is expected in the first game and we just hope to polish up in the next game.

On playing Argentina: “We just need to polish up and execute better because once you get to the big games it’s all about who’s going to execute well and who’s going to work well on and off the ball, both defence and attack. But we just have to take it one game at a time and execute the little things right because they’re the things that make a big difference.”
