The Kenya National team, Harambee stars, had a bad day in office, as they lost to Mozambique 1-0, in an international friendly match played on Sunday, October 13, 2019, at the MISC Kasarani.

The first half was rather subtle as the players were learning their opponents strengths and analysing the opponents weaknesses. Harambee Stars forwards, made several attempts to bag a goal but the odds seemed not to be in their favor.

In the second half, Quembo Witiness made the most of a defensive mishap to score past Faruk Shikalo in the Harambee Stars goal.

Mozambique then held on for the remainder of the match to see out a 1-0 friendly win.

Stars’ next assignment is in the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup Nations Qualifiers where the team will face Egypt and Togo back to back matches.
