“When a coach gives you an opportunity, it means he trusts you, and the best thing to do is to perform on the pitch. Of course my defenders have done an impressive job guarding me and that has contributed to the clean sheets," Matasi told Goal.

“As a goalkeeper, once you keep the ball from hitting the back of your net it gives you motivation to do better. I cannot talk about the Burundi match, all I can tell Kenyans is that we will give our best and aim at reaching the finals.”

Another semi-final match will pit defending champions Uganda Cranes against Zanzibar.
