Harambee Stars dimmed by Burundi



The African Nations Championships (CHAN) qualification match between Kenya’s Harambee Stars and the Burundi Swallows ended on a barren draw, seeing Burundi progress on a 1-0 aggregate.

Burundi had won the opening match, played on 16 December 2012, in Bujumbura.

In the second leg match, played at the Nyayo Stadium, Burundi went on attack in the first minute with Fistone Abdul making it to the Stars area. He was, however, felled and awarded a free-kick, which he squandered.

Sensing the danger, Kenya kicked up their game a notch higher and by the half-hour mark they were dominating the pitch in terms of ball-possession.

In the 32nd minute, Edwin Wafula almost scored after picking the ball up on the edge of the box, but his execution came short, going out for a corner.

The match went into the half-time break with neither team able to find a goal. In the second-half, Stars’ head Coach James Nandwa made quick substitutions with Moses Arita coming in for Wesley Kemboi, Osborne Monday for Charles Okwemba and Paul Mungai Kiongera replacing Edwin Lavatsa.

The changes hurried the game for the Stars but did not yield any goals. After the win, Burundi get to meet Sudan in the next round of the tournament, while Kenya have been locked out for the next two years.
