Kenya have collected just two points from so many matches in Group E so far and the administrator believes that good preparations are lacking
Gor Mahia’s sporting director, Omondi Aduda, believes Kenya can perform better in the remaining 2022 World Cups with proper preparatory matches.
The Harambee Stars started their campaign last Thursday with a deadlock at home against Uganda, before settling 1-1 with Rwanda on Monday.
Before their first Group E match, the Cranes played in a friendly match with Ethiopia and lost 2-1.
That was after Amavubi managed to play a double header against the Central African Republic and secure an overall 7-0 victory. However, this was not the same case with Kenya, as the administrator explains.
What did Aduda say?
‘After the result on Sunday, we have a two-point distance between us [Kenya] and Mali. A lot needs to be done to get Stars a positive outcome in the upcoming matches, ‘said Gor Mahia official. Purpose.
‘The day they made a decision to relieve [Francis] Make water and bring [Jacob ‘Ghost’] Mulee, I believe, in their wisdom they did it in good faith. They need to make proper preparations for the remaining World Cup qualifiers.
‘Stars need preparatory matches; while others played significant build-up matches, Kenya played against Tusker and won by a single goal courtesy of a Tusker player [Boniface Muchiri] also.
“From the two matches [against Uganda and Rwanda], we can determine where our weaknesses are and what needs to be done. Then the deciding course will be very clear with the double header against Mali. ”
Mulee optimistic despite successive draws
Meanwhile, Jacob Mulee, head coach of Harambee Stars insists the team is still in the race to Qatar despite not being able to get maximum points to Nyamirambo Stadium in Rwanda this past weekend.
Kenya is second with two points, with Uganda and Rwanda, while Mali is at the summit with four.
‘This is our second game and Rwanda are a good team, and we saw them play in the second half, they enjoyed the pace and possession, but I think we scored the first goal, then we we lost concentration and from a corner they conceded in the game, “said Mulee. Purpose.
‘But we also watched the match; we created a lot of chances, mostly by our captain, yes, he scored a goal, but he also had other opportunities to score a second goal, and we can blame the draw because we did not use our chances in this games.
‘Otherwise it’s not fair, because if we look at both sides who did not win their first matches and returned to Rwanda, and we get a point, it’s stiff, but we’re still in the race for the World Cup. , it’s not over yet, so we’re playing two more matches, and we’re going to Morocco for the Mali match, and that’s going to determine which way it goes. “
