It’s all systems go for Harambee Stars friendly match with Mozambique on Sunday in what will be Francis Kimanzi’s second official match in charge since his appointment to replace Sebastian Migne.
In his first match against Uganda last month, the team struggled in the first half and were unlucky to be only a goal down going into the break. However, a much more confident second-half performance earned a 1-1 draw with Gor Mahia captain Kenneth Muguna netting the equalizer. Kimanzi urged his team to showcase the same level of confidence from the start during Mozambique.
“We are ready to participate in tomorrow’s friendly and get a positive result. The players in the team are doing well in training and we hope to see the same confidence as they play for the National Team,” He said.
Victor Wanyama missed the draw with Uganda due to a knee injury but he is expected to skipper the team on Sunday. Also present is defender Joseph Okumu. The central defender was arguably Kenya’s best player the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.
The performances earned him a move to Swedish top-flight side Elfsborg in the summer transfer window. Zesco United striker Jesse Were will also make his long-awaited comeback to the National team.
Ticket prices have been set at KES 200 all-round access and will be sold at the Ngomongo Police Station roundabout, Opposite Safari Park Hotel, and at the Kasarani Stadium’s Gate 12.
