Stars too bright for South Sudan
Harambee Stars silenced South Sudan 2-0 in their first ever international encounter at Namboole Stadium on Tuesday.
Goals from David Ochieng and Clifton Miheso was enough to give Kenya its first victory in Cecafa this year.
Stars dominated the match creating numerous chances from the onset. Mieno was the first culprit as he failed to beat the keeper with one minute played. Mike Baraza’s cross found Kevin Omondi in the fifth minute but he missed the net by inches.
However, Kenya managed to get an early lead into the game via David Ochieng who headed in Kevin Omondi’s corner to make it 1-0 in the 14th minute.
Leopards pacy winger Paul Were appeared to be off duty as he missed a one on one chance against keeper Jenario.
He was forced to pave way for eventual scorer Cliffton Miheso whose clinical left foot sent the ball into the back of the net with 23 minutes into second half.
Kenya will face Ethiopia next and have now moved to second in Group A standings.
