Bevis Mugabi Scores for English Side, Aims Future Cranes Callups


Last week while naming his squad for double duty against Kenya in a friendly and final AFCON 2017 qualifying match against Comoros, cheap Coach Micho included a rare face – Bevis Mugabi who plies trade in English league two side Yeovil town FC.

The 21 year old defender failed to turn up on time and says it was due to the short notice received for the call up. However, the former Southampton youngster has opened his doors and looks eagerly for future engagements with the national team.

“It was a proud moment for me and my family,” Mugavi was quoted by Yeovil’s Somerset live. “Unfortunately I couldn’t go but hopefully next time I get a call up things will be better and I can go.”
