Cecafa 2015: Zanzibar Humiliation Leaves Kenya in Balance

Kenya’s Harambee stars hopes of progressing to the group stages of the 2015 Cecafa senior challenge cup are hanging in balance after fatally crushing 3-1 to Fifa non ranked islanders, more about Zanzibar.

Zanzibar, treatment who are already eliminated, opened the scoring in the 44th minute with a strong pile driver from Sulaiman Khamis after picking an irresponsible clearance from Harun Shakava.

A panicky Bobby Williamson pulled off Kevin Amwayi and KPL topscorer Jesse Were for Gor Mahia superstar Michael Olunga and Johanna Omollo but barely two minutes later Azam Fc striker Hamis Mcha Hamis doubled the scoreline for Zanzibar. Khamis finished his brace with just 17 minutes to go after cruising past Shakava and Okello in the Kenyan goal.

Bobby Williamson coached side were consoled with a late strike from Jacob Keli.

Kenya’s hopes purely rely on other games including Burundi versus Uganda on Saturday.
