Kemboi targets Burundi scalp



Kenya striker Wesley Kemboi hopes he can help the national team get the better of Burundi in their CHAN qualifying duel.

The Harambee Stars have a one goal deficit to claw back in the return leg set for Saturday 5 January 2012.

Stars have struggled to score goals in qualifying play, with their last effort arriving in the 2-1 win over Togo in February. Since then, they have drawn 0-0 with Malawi, lost 1-0 to Namibia and again by the same scoreline in Burundi.

Kemboi, though, feels that they are capable of causing damage in the final third and aims to illustrate this against Burundi.

“We have a bad goal record in qualifying this year you have to admit. The goals have just not been going in by some twist of fate. Against Burundi in the first leg, we had chances but they just did not go in.”

“However, we have what it takes to score and I am sure we will show it when Burundi come over. “If you look at our strike force, it is full of quality which I think will be shown in the return game.”

Kemboi is yet to score for the national team, something he hopes to rectify soon.

“I hope that the goal will come sooner rather than later,” he said. “If it stays long, it becomes a monkey on your back and I do not want to carry one. I have been working hard in training and will hope it shows when we play. My thinking though and with some luck is that it comes soon,” Kemboi concluded.

Stars will report back to training at the end of this week after the Christmas break.
