Oliech upbeat despite defeat



Even after falling to a 1-0 defeat to the Tanzanian national team, Harambee Stars captain Dennis Oliech maintains his team are showing signs of progress.

According to Oliech, there are a few elements that need to be tweaked for optimum performance to be attained, something he said can only be achieved if the national team is subjected to as many international friendly matches as possible.

“There is definitely some improvement in the way the team plays and judging from how we carried ourselves in the match there are better things to come in the days ahead. However, for this to be attained, we need to play in a number of international matches, something that will give us the needed exposure to perform well when placed on the global pedestal,” said Oliech.

Oliech also urged the Football Kenya Federation to ensure that the officiating, especially for matches that affect Kenya’s international ranking, should be of a high quality.

“In the match against Tanzania, all the officials were Tanzanians, which as per Fifa rules should not be permitted. FKF should always make proper inquiries on such things well before the match as it this reflects on the outcome of the match.”

The match was played at the CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza, Tanzania on Wednesday.
