Harambee Stars goalkeeper Patrick Matasi has exuded confidence in the team ahead of the upcoming friendly matches against Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Kenya will come up against Algeria, Tanzania, and Senegal in group C of the continent’s premier national competition, and Matasi notes that it is enough motivation for them to give a good account of themselves.

“Against Algeria, we will come up against a Premier League winner. Against Senegal, we will face a Champions League winner. This is enough motivation for us to put in extra work in training,” said Matasi.
