Tanzania host this years edition of the tournament and as nothing has gone spectacularly wrong jut as yet it seems Kenya might actually take part which would be the first time in two? years and following a combination of their unholy tradition of last minute preparation and Kenya’s lowly World ranking, the only preparation the have done since the end of the domestic campaign is one week tour of Oman in which they played 2 matches against the Omani national team getting drawing both games 2-2 and 1-1 before the boys go to Tanzania for the December tournament.
Having been place in group A alongside hosts Tanzania, Somalia and Burundi, the Kenya team, which comprises almost entirely players from local leagues, will hope to re-establish their reputation as the regional Football superpower with a win or at least make their presence felt witha a strong showing. Hopefully with ‘Ghost’ Mulee back at the helm and some sense of sanity and stability in the football fraternity in comparison to the years that followed Kenya’s last participation at a major football competition in 2004 the Harambee Stars will give us something to smile about.
