Olunga, 3 others, test positive for Coronavirus as Harambee Stars end AFCON campaign on high note

A spirited Harambee Stars rampaged the Sparrow hawks of Togo 2-1 despite the absence of key players to end their AFCON qualifiers matches on a winning note.

The current acting team captain, Michael Olunga, Joash Onyango, Ian Otieno, and the talented Lawrence Juma tested positive for the Coronavirus prompting the four to be barred from participating in the clash.

Bandari FC winger, Abdalla Hassan broke the dead Lock on the 33″ minute, finishing a quick counter attack to give Kenya a well-deserved lead. Masoud Juma doubled Harambee Stars lead in the 66″ minute after winning a penalty which he calmly slotted past the hopeless Togolese goalkeeper. Togo managed to pull one back in the dying minutes with Henri Eninful slotting home from the spot to make it 2-1.

However, the win was not enough to send Kenya to the June Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon. They ended the group in the third spot, 4 points below Egypt and 2 points below the second-placed Comoros.

Egypt and Comoros have joined Sudan, Algeria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Sudan, Tunisia, and Zimbabwe in the nations headed for Cameroon.
