World Cup Qualifier clash pitting Kenya against Uganda to be televised on Y254

The 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying match between East African neighbours Harambee Stars and Uganda Cranes will be aired live on state broadcaster’s KBC sister station Y254 Channel.

The game set for Thursday from 4pm EAT will rekindle the memories of 2012 AFCON qualifiers in Kampala when Kenya frustrated their arch-rivals to a barren draw and consequently deny them a chance to continental finals in Gabon.

The two nations battled to a barren draw in the opening leg at Nyayo Stadium on September 2 and they will be renewing their rivalry when they collide in today’s Group E return leg match of the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers at St Mary’s Kitende Stadium, Kampala.

Team captain Micheal Olunga is optimistic Kenya is up to the task that awaits them in Kampala.

 

“Games against Uganda are normally very tough and judging from their recent form, we will have to be at our best to compete with them. I am certain we will give them a good game,” he observed.

Preparations done 💪💪#Tunaweza pic.twitter.com/aTF5eHAC19

Kenya coach Engin Firat has selected 24 players for the trip including Belgium-based defender Joseph Okumu and midfielder Richard Odada who is based in Serbia even though the latter was considered injury doubt ahead of this contest.

Stars are already out of the running to play at next year’s Fifa World Cup. The team is also seeking win number one on its fifth attempt in the qualifiers following draws with Uganda and Rwanda and back-to-back losses against Mali.

Kenya are currently third on the log with two points from four matches, six points behind Uganda Cranes who are still in contention to qualify to the next round.
