Kensi Tangis: striking for history

Kensi Tangis is one of the most prolific strikers in the Pacific Islands nowadays and he is living a bright moment in his career scoring lots of goals. He was the 2018-19 Solomon Islands S-League with 23 goals scored and he is currently leading the Golden Boot race in 2019-20 Port Vila Premier League with a good margin from other contesters.

Even scoring lots of goals in both countries, he sees a clear difference between the football style of both countries: “Vanuatu’s football is more physical while Solomon Islands’ is more technical.

With 29 years old, the Galaxy’s striker is currently recovering from an injury. He got injured in the loss against Sia-Raga and did not show up in the 0-0 draw against Tafea. His absence from the team coincided with a bad run of Galaxy in the league. Currently in the fourth place in the league table, they are looking forward for next matches while they aim to perform at a good level in the Galaxy’s first ever international experience in 2020 Oceania Champions League – “Preparation for OFC Champions League is going good but we need more technical training.” he stated.

Tangis is a key player for Galaxy. With some great international experience – played in Solomon Islands, Tahiti and also capped 28 times for Vanuatu National Team – he is really ready for this continental challenge once he already played 25 matches and scored 11 goals in OFC Champions League history.

With a good retrospect at international level, he made it clear – “I really want to play abroad again”. His incredible capacity to score obviously allows him to play well in a good level as he already proved it.
