Burundi complain about pitch
Just a day to the CHAN qualifier that will pit Kenya against Burundi, the visitors have raised their concerns over the venue of the match.
The Swallows who come into the match with a 1-0 lead have faulted the host country on Nyayo National Stadium which will be the venue for the return leg.
“This is a very bad pitch. It looks like animals graze here. Why couldn’t they move the match to Kasarani which is a better pitch?”
“Do they fear if they do so they’ll lose. They should have done better with the venue,” said Burundi assistant coach Niyongoba Amars.
Kenya need to win by two goals to get past their opponents but Amars has promised to dash their hopes despite resilience from Harambee Stars.
“We have a good team here in Nairobi and they will play to win and reach the next stage when we face Kenya.”
Probable line up:
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.
