Two players, who made their debuts for Harambee Stars on Thursday against Uganda, have earned plaudits from their fellow team-mate Brian Mandela.

He says they showed enough confidence and played all their hearts out to ensure that Harambee Stars don’t suffer defeat.

“I think the new players did their best. They blended well with us in the match and I think the credit goes to the coach too for believing in them. Generally, we played well despite the draw.”

Both players (Kamura and Onyango) started for Kenya and it is expected that they will still be given chance against DR Congo on Sunday.
