Kenya has no reliable right-back
This is the painful truth. Philemon Otieno struggled against Algeria and his positioning was at fault for their second goal. Against Tanzania, David Owino - who plays as a center-back, was started at right-back and was at fault for the two goals conceded. It is a problem which needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
Eric Ouma deserves a starting berth
Francis Kahata is doomed
Joseph Okumu is the future
The youngster was solid at the back and made vital interceptions which helped the team stage a comeback. Despite his age, he commanded the likes of Abud Omar, Musa Mohammed and David Owino, who are more experienced. He blocked a goal bound effort from Taifa Stars danger man Mbwana Samatta.
Omollo is the real midfield anchor-man
The Belgium-based player brought the much-needed composure in the midfield and helped captain Victor Wanyama to run the show. He was not afraid to commit when needed to. Even when others had given up, he believed and scored a vital leveller which put Kenya on course to record a 3-2 win against Tanzania.
Olunga is the real deal
The striker once again rose to the occasion when he was much-needed by his teammates and the country at large. His two goals were magical, and they came in the right time, when most had given up. He will be the main man for Kenya in the final Group C game against Senegal. If you want a goal, it is simple, pass Olunga the ball.
