Reading Time: 1 minute

Kenya Harambee Stars on Friday arrived in Kigali ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Rwanda on Sunday, September 5.

Jacob Ghost Mulee charges are eyeing positive results away from home after a barren draw with neighbours Uganda in a match played at Nyayo Stadium, Nairobi, on Thursday.

After the match against Uganda, Mulee said the team aims to scoop maximum points in Rwanda.

He also hailed midfielder Richard Odada who was making his debut, for impressive performance.

“We managed to get at least one point and we hope to reap maximum points from our match against Rwanda,” said Mulee.

“We didn’t get what we were looking for but it’s only the beginning. From Odada’s performance it’s quite clear we won’t be talking about midfield problems anymore,” he added.

Ugandan coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojević was satisfied with one point.

“Playing against a Kenyan team that has a target man of Michael Olunga’s calibre is not an easy task. Our plan was to cut out supplies to Olunga and I’m glad our defenders managed to pull that off,” stated Micho.

In the other Group E match, Mali registered a 1-0 win over Rwanda to take the top seat.
