Kenya football team, popularly known as Harambee Stars, has jetted back in the country following a 1-1 draw in their second match of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Kigali, Rwanda.
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) announced that the team landed in the country on Monday morning after being in Rwanda from Friday, August 3, 2021.
“All guns are now set on the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier back-to-back matches against Mali in October 2021,” said FKF.
Kenya’s captain Michael Olunga put the Stars ahead in the 9th minute, but the host levelled in the 21st minute through Abdul Rwatubyaye.
Jacob Ghost Mulee’s charges had a plethora of opportunities to bag the maximum points but were wasteful in the front of the goal.
Following the result, Kenya remains second in Group E behind group leaders Mali and ahead of Uganda and Rwanda.
Stars drew 0-0 with Uganda in their opener in Nairobi on September 2, 2021.
Kenya might drop to number three should Uganda win against Mali today.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
