Kenya Vs Angola: Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier

So a number of search queries about the Kenya Vs Angola match have hit landed on my blog, and on the old post about the first match played in Kenya.

The Stars won 2-1 back then! It was a thrilling match!

I’ve decided to blog about the latest match, which I watched on TV.

In summary: Angola won 1-0.

Manucho, who at one time was at Man-U.

Harambee Stars, heart-breakers extraodinnaire, went to Angola and took on the Palancas Negras. The match results will eventually determine which between Kenya, Angola, Uganda and Guinea Bissau will make it to the Africa Cup of Nations next year (around January) that will be hosted jointly by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon

They played beautifully. It was Kenyans leading the attack in the first half but they were shooting blanks. The match was at 0-0 half time. We hoped The Stars would be encouraged to give us a goal in the second half.

And by God they scored! Rangers FC forward Kevin Ochieng scored Kenya’s first goal in the 60th minute!

Only it was offside!!

That offside rule needs to be revised, surely…

10 minutes later, Manucho equalized for Angola.

That is how we lost 1-1!

So here are the standings:

1. Uganda- 10 pts
2. Angola- x points
3. Kenya – 4pts
4. Guinea Bissau – 3 pts

Anyway, for us to qualify, we have to beat Uganda away, and GB at home by many goals. Then we stand a chance of competing for the few slots available for the number 2 teams.

If I were you, I wouldn’t start putting up the pieces of my heart together, I can feel heartbreak in the near future.

Maybe in readiness for the 2014 World Cup?
