Ex- Osereian defender Anita Adongo believes she has come of  age tobe a systematic in the national women’s football team, Harambee Starlets.

Adongo, who spent the last two seasons at Alliance Queens in Tanzania, said she had picked valuable lessons.

Alliance finished second behind champions Simba Queens in the 2019/2020 season that ended in August.

“While I have been part of the national team since 2015 when I joined from Wiyeta Secondary School I have always been starting from the bench. But with the experience and exposure I have gained in Tanzania, I believe I have what it takes to become a regular at the national team,” said Adongo.

Furthermore, she admits it will not be easy since she has to contend for a place with national team captain Dorcas Shikobe, Ruth Ingotsi of Cyprus giants AEL Champions and Lydia Akoth of Thika Queens.

“First things first, I have to work on getting the call up to be able to make a return to the team. I’m aware there is competition and new players are emerging but I know I will be a good addition,” said Adongo.

The last time Adongo played for the Starlets was in the 2018 Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (Cecafa) Women Championships held in Rwanda as the team finished fourth in the five-nation tournament.

The 23-year-old, who is a free agent believes  she will find a good club before Kenya Women Premier League (KWPL) transfer window closes on November 16 2020.
