Harambee Stars Off To Togo On Chartered Flight

The Kenya men’s senior national team has left for Togo for their final 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Sparrow Hawks.

On Thursday, Harambee Stars were held to a 1-1 draw by Egypt in their penultimate AFCON qualifier played at Moi International Sports Centre.

A goal from Mohamed Magdy ensured the Pharaohs joined Comoros from Group G as Togo and Kenya saw their journeys to next year’s tournament, which will be staged in the central African nation of Cameroon, come to an end.

Harambee Stars are expected to arrive in Togo on Saturday night and they will have a feel of the field of play later in the day as they wrap up their final group G qualifier match.

Kenya face the host nation Togo on Monday at Stade de Kégué located just few kilometers from capital, Lome.

Speaking before departure, Harambee Stars coach Jacob Mulee said the team will put up a good show in Lome.

“The team showed immense confidence in their game against Egypt and it gives me hope of a positive result as we face Togo on Monday and also in the other upcoming competitions ahead in the calendar,” said coach Mulee.

Gor Mahia midfielder Kenneth Muguna has already been ruled out of the match having sustained a knee injury during the clash against Egypt.

Kazier Chiefs defender Antony Akumu will also not be available against the Sparrow Hawks after asking for leave to attend to family issues.
