Stars on the Spot to Hammer Ghana, Wanyama

Wanyama: We are under pressure against Ghana

Harambee Stars skipper Victor Wanyama has admitted that they are under pressure to continue their good form when they take on Ghana in an African Cup of Nations qualifier match on Saturday 23rd March. 

Despite the match being dead rubber with both teams having already sealed a place in the AFCON finals that is slated for June in Egypt this year, the two teams will want to qualify as group winner to have a favorable draw.

Kenya are unbeaten in the qualifiers after their opening defeat against Sierra Leone was scrapped off following their ban by FIFA for government involvement in football. 

Speaking in an interview before the team jetted off to Ghana on Wednesday night, Wanyama admitted that the team is under pressure, “We have prepared well, we know we are still under pressure and have to continue from where we left from because we played well in the previous matches and we have to continue with the winning streak. We know that Ghana is a good team and we take them as one of the best teams in the tournament and we want to gauge ourselves against them.”
