The Harambee Stars landed in Lagos on Wednesday afternoon as the World Cup qualifying match against the Super Eagles shapes up

Kenya’s national team arrived in Lagos on Wednesday afternoon via a Kenya Airways flight ahead of their 2014 World Cup qualifying game against Nigeria this weekend.

The Harambee Stars are expected to leave Lagos for Calabar on Thursday where the Super Eagles await them.

However, the Kenyans are not happy that they have to spend the night in Lagos having thought they would be given a chartered flight by the Nigeria Football Federation to fly to Calabar immediately.

“They have put us in a two star hotel here in Lagos but we don’t mind since it is just one night and then we leave for Calabar. We are trying to prevail upon them to give us a training ground,” he told Goal.com.

Hussein said the weather was very hot and this may affect the Kenyans especially coming from cooler Nairobi.

This Group F encounter is must win for both sides if they hope to brighten their chances of making the World Cup in Brazil.

While Nigeria lead with four points, Kenya is bottom of the group. With three points, Namibia are breathing down the necks of the African champions. The Brave Warriors host Malawi this weekend in Windhoek.

Kenya have never defeated Nigeria in 13 meetings at the senior level where the west Africans have won 11 times. The best record for the Harambee Stars is two draws.
