Harambee Stars made it two wins in as many games when they beat a stubborn Malawi 1-0 at Kasarani stadium on Tuesday afternoon.
Gor Mahia’s mercurial play maker, Francis Kahata dubbed the Kenyan Messi scored the lone goal in the 77th minute after being set up by Eric ‘Marcelo’ Ouma, another Gor prodigy.
Stars had been subdued by a dominant Malawi side until Ouma, came off the bench to provide the brilliant cross that brilliant assist.
The former Gor Mahia youngster had missed the target by a whisker in the 68th minute with his header from Joakins Atudo’s cross flying inches wide.
Kenya coach Sebastian Migne made two changes to the team that edged Ghana 1-0 last Saturday in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier two days ago starting Joackins Atudo and Jesse Were in place of injured duo of Philemon Otieno and Michael Olunga.
Kenyan fans have taken to social media to express their opinions about how the national team is performing.
