Victor Wanyama penalty seals friendly win for Kenya over Madagascar

Captain Victor Wanyama slotted in the lone goal as Kenya beat Madagascar 1-0 in a pre-AFCON international friendly match played on Friday, June 7, 2019, at the Stade Robert Bobin Stadium in Paris, France.

Harambee Stars had a first-half scare when Patrick Matasi infringed a Malagasy opponent in the box. He, however, stepped up to save the resultant spot kick, the first half ending 0-0.

Stars would get a penalty of their own in the second half, one captain Victor Wanyama stepped up to calmly slot in.

Kenya then held on for a morale-boosting win, as focus now shifts to the second friendly against the Democratic Republic of Congo on June 15, 2019, in Madrid.

    Our boys……msiogope.kitu ni kujiamini.If you did Madagascar, hii ni junior. Senegal is weaker to algeria.
    Olunga game ni ile ile. Remember defence starts from the triker.
    Pass the ball. Always see your team. Game ya kuonana. Muwachokeshe. Midfiled.
    Wings pass the balls. Be in position. Three of you play together.

    Bett is 1-1
    Mungu akipenda. Tuwagonge 2-1
