Harambee Stars midfielder Anthony Wambani helped his IF Vasalund to promotion in Sweden.


Wambani was part of the Vasalund team that recorded a 3-1 win over Gefle on Saturday but his team had to wait for Sunday matches to confirm promotion; the Kenyan completing the full minutes in the game.


Their promotion dream was realized when Haninge played to a 2-2 draw against Sandviken and Brommapojkarna losing 1-2 to Täby FK; the result seeing the team getting promoted to the Swedish Superettan (the country’s second Division).
