Stars confident of turnaround



Harambee Stars defender James Situma is confident that the national team will prevail over Burundi in the CHAN qualifiers.

The Stars have a 1-0 deficit to overcome from the first leg clash played last weekend in Bujumbura, Burundi. They will thus have to collect a two-goal win to go through to the next round of qualifiers when they meet again on Saturday 5 January.

Situma believes that the Stars have got more than is needed to continue in the qualifiers.

“We were unlucky to lose the first game in Burundi. We were the more dominant team and had enough chances to score there,” he said. “They had one or two chances to score but we limited them to half chances and long shots which was good.

“Considering we were away from home, it was a good result for us. I am confident that you will see a good display from us when the return leg match comes around. “The team will give it’s all and I am hopeful we will go through without any problems.”

The Stars have struggled to score goals in recent years in competitive matches but Situma insists that they are getting better.

“We have players who are good goal scorers in the country. I have played with many of them and they are all good players. Maybe what we need is a bit of luck,” he added.

“We have the ability to score goals and I am confident we will show that when we play Burundi.”
