Ali Mekawir‘s return to Waneagu United had an instant impact as he helped his team secure a 2-0 win over Kossa in the opening match of the new season of the Telekom S-League. The Solomon Islands international notched a goal in his first game back with his former club, showcasing his quality and demonstrating why he is such an important player for Waneagu.
Mekawir’s return was much anticipated, as he is widely regarded as one of the upcoming stars of local football. After a brief stint in Australia and United Arab Emirates football, the 22-year-old striker has returned to his roots and is already making a big impact for his team.
In the match against Kossa, Mekawir was not the only national team member to shine. Bobby Leslie, another talented young striker, scored the other goal for Waneagu. Together, the two players demonstrated the strength and depth of local talent Waneagu has on its service.
With this win, Waneagu has already made a strong statement in the league, beating the second-placed team from last season in their opening match. Mekawir’s contribution was vital to this success, and his return has already provided a big boost for his team. As the season progresses, it will be exciting to see what other contributions Mekawir will make and how far Waneagu can go with him leading their attack.
