Stars Faces Brink of Elimination
The third meeting between Kenya and Guinea Bissau went wrong on Harambee Stars as they lost 1-0 to their host in a Group E Afcon 2017 qualifier on Wednesday.
Harambee Stars’ quest to earn a ticket to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations finals suffered a blow in the 18th minute with a goal courtesy of Idrissa Camara.
Stars unexpectedly secured themselves a place at the bottom of the group with one point from three matches.
The first half goal by Guinea Bissau condemned Stars to a second defeat in three games in the race to qualify for next year’s continental showpiece.
The defeat leaves Kenya on the brink of elimination. From three matches, Kenya has picked just a point which came in 1-1 draw against Congo in September last year.
Kenya then fell 1-2 to Zambia in Nairobi in their second match of the campaign.
Kenya needs to win all their three matches to earn a chance of qualifying for the continental showpiece.
Zambia remains top of the group with five points after being held to a 1-1 draw by Congo Brazzaville in Ndola.
The two teams face off again on Sunday in Nairobi.
