Expectations are high as Kenya national team Harambee Stars take on Mali in the crucial 2022 World Cup qualifiers tie at the Grande Stade d’Agadir in Morocco.
According to Kenyan fullback David Owino, attitude and character will determine the match outcome.
“There is no such thing as a small or large team, in my opinion.” It all depends on your preparations and how well you perform on a material day. The opponents may have players from the highest leagues, but attitude is essential. We have a chance to win the match if we keep an optimistic mindset,” said Owino.
On the other hand, Aboud Omar, who plays for AEL Larisa in Greece, warned their opponents not to underestimate them.
“I believe we will surprise many people, as many of them have viewed us as underdogs for a long time.” Our fate will be decided by the results of the next two games. In football, anything may happen at any time. “We have a good team that can keep Mali at bay,” Omar stated.
Centre Back Joseph Okumu said the team has enough quality to register positive results.
“I feel everything is possible in football because it is a sport where the outcome is difficult to anticipate.” You can’t take chances with it. Thus everything is conceivable to me, “ he added.
Kenya is in the second position in Group E with two points, two behind Mali.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
