Kenya’s Harambee Stars will be looking to revive their Afcon campaign when they meet familiar neighbours, Tanzania.
The two lost 2-0 to Algeria and Senegal in their opening match and will be looking to seal, at least, a spot in the best second-placed category.
Their head coach Sebastian Migne has not stopped stressing the need to put up a good show and beat the Tanzanians on Thursday night.
“When you lose the first match in this kind of competition it is important to try to win the second if you are to qualify to the next round,” the Frenchman stressed.
Ranked 105 and 24th in Africa, the Kenyans are odd on favourites to come top in the match but their lead striker Michael Olunga is well aware that this is an East African derby and anything could happen.
“It will be a very tough game. We know them and they as well know us. It is a derby. Both of us lost our first matches with the same margin so stakes will be high. We have three points to fight for and we are going to give our best since tomorrow’s result will define our progress in the competition.” said Olunga.
Algeria and Senegal will square up in the other match. Both games will be played at the 30 June Stadium.
