Ghanaian striker Dede Ayew believes everything is in place for Kenya to dine with the mighty in continental football.
The Olympic Marseille striker and son of former Ghanaian legend Abedi Pele, was speaking at Moi Kasarani, where the Black Stars had pitched training camp ahead of the decisive return leg match of the AFCON 2013 against Malawi in Blantyre on Saturday.
"Kenya has the facilities, the infrastructure, the players, good will, and a fantastic coach. Almost everything is in place."
Ayew added, "All that is needed is for everyone to pull in the same direction. I rather have a team with no superstars but works as a unit than a team reliant on two superstars."
Kenya has struggled in recent times to leave a mark on the region and continental scene partly due to the infighting and wrangling by the Sport's administrators.
Ayew singled out Dennis Oliech (Auxerre), Victor Wanyama (Celtic) and Macdonald Mariga (Inter Milan) as some of the players who can take Kenya places.
