CHAN2020: Harambee Stars frustrate Tanzania to gain first leg advantage

Harambee Stars demonstrated a defensive masterclass to draw 0-0 with Tanzania in the two team’s CHAN qualifier first leg match.

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.
