Harambee Stars demonstrated a defensive masterclass to draw 0-0 with Tanzania in the two team’s CHAN qualifier first leg match.
HT: The goal scoring chances have been few and far between with the best falling to Iddi Selemani who headed over the bar. Kenya never looked like scoring. Tanzania 0-0 Kenya

Sebastian Migne set up to deny the hosts and his plan worked wonders in the first half as Kenya restricted Taifa Stars to no shots on target.
Tanzania had the ball in the back of the net on the hour mark but it was correctly called off for offside. Harambee Stars almost scored 6 minutes later but Paul Godfrey’s excellent clearance off the line kept the scores level.
Stars held on to draw and will have the chance to finish the job in the second leg set to be played on Sunday next week at the Kasarani Stadium. The aggregate winner will then face off with Sudan in the second qualifying round.
Full time: Tanzania 0-0 Harambee Stars. A good result for Kenya away from home, the two teams face-off again on Sunday at Moi International Sports Center Kasarani. Stars have a good chance of winning at home and move to the second and final round of the qualifiers #CHAN2020Q pic.twitter.com/cEnlB2ShVL
