Kenya women national team Harambee Starlets is on a mission to go past its Ghana counterpart in their 2020 Summer Olympics Qualifiers.
Harambee Starlets recorded a barren draw against the Black Queens in their first leg meeting away, and they are not having any options but to win in order to advance to the next stage.
The ladies jetted back in the country on Sunday, and while speaking on their arrival, head coach David Ouma picked positives from their 0-0 draw at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday and promised a good result when they play in Nairobi on Tuesday.
“Of course playing a draw away to Ghana was a positive result for us. It gives us a good starting point for yet another positive outcome in the second leg on Tuesday,” he said.
On her side, striker Mwanahalima Adams has expressed their contentment with the first leg result but asserted that the return leg will be a do-or-die affair.
“We played according to the coach’s instructions and achieved the result we wanted. Our hope is that fans will come out in large numbers to support us on Tuesday as we look to get a win that we really need,” she said.
Football Kenya Federation has announced fans will not pay any coin to watch the match which will be played as from 4 pm. The winner of the encounter will proceed to the fourth of the qualifiers.
