Mozambique 1-1 Kenya: Harambee Stars force draw in friendly
Erick Johanna ensured the East African nation returned home with a point in the 85th minute after firing to level the scores

Eric Johanna saved Harambee Stars with a late goal against Mozambique on Saturday.

Stanley Okumbi's excellent unbeaten run in friendly matches was extended to ten games as Harambee Stars held hosts Mozambique to a one all draw in Maputo.

The Kenyan side, that lacked the services of dependable striker Michael Olunga, winger Ayub Timbe, Erick Ouma - who was left out, and captain Victor Wanyama was undone by a 59th minute strike by Domingues Pelembe.

But Erick Johanna ensured the East African nation returned home with a point in the 85th minute after firing past the opponent's custodian.

The friendly was a build up to the second match of the 2019 Afcon Qualifiers against Ghana scheduled for March 2018 in Kenya

On Friday, a Chan side, led by assistant coach Musa Otieno recorded a similar result against Mauritania in Morocco. The side will be facing the hosts on Tuesday hoping to get a favourable result.
