Stars face off with Burundi



Kenya’s Harambee Stars will be locking horns with the Swallows of Burundi in what is expected to be an explosive return leg of their African Nations Championship qualifying duel at Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday.

Burundi will go into the match with the upper hand following their 1-0 victory in Bujumbura’s Port Louis Stadium a fortnight ago, but being the home team, Stars will back themselves to overturn the deficit and qualify for the next round of the competition.

It will be the third meeting between the sides with each of them enjoying a 1-0 scoreline at the others’ expense, with Kenya edging Burundi in 2009.

Initially, the match was scheduled for Saturday but it was later moved to Sunday by the Football Kenya Federation.

In team news, Harambee Stars coach James Nandwa will have to do without vice-captain James Situma, who suffered a thigh injury in the first leg.

However, Nandwa has strengthened the squad by recalling AFC Leopards trio Mike Baraza, Bernard Mang’oli and Paul Were as well as Sofapaka’s Enock Agwanda and Gor Mahia’s Kevin Omondi.

Probable line ups:

Kenya: Duncan Ochieng[C], Edwin Wafula, Abdallah Juma, Eugene Asike, David ‘Cheche’ Ochieng’, Bernard Mang’oli, Anthony Akumu, Francis Kahata, Mungai Kiongera, Mike Baraza, Wesley Kemboi.

Subs: Boniface Oluoch, George Owino, Charles Okwemba, Chris Wekesa, Kevin Omondi, Clifton Miheso, Paul Were.

Burundi: Saidi Nduwimana (GK), Emery Nimubona, Leopold Nkurikiye, Hassan Hakizimana, Masudi Abdallah, Gilbert Kaze, Gaël Duhayindavyi, Christophe Nduwarugira, Christophe Ndayishimiye, Stève Nzigamasabo, Tambwe Amissi

Subs: Marc Arakaza (GK), Haruna Manirakiza, Issa Hakizimana, Yussuf Ndikumana, Moussa Ally, Fiston Abdoul Razak, Saïdi Juma.
