Kenya will host the Cranes in the Migingo Derby on September 2 in Group E match at Kasarani Stadium, but which players could shine for the hosts?

  • Lawrence Juma of Kenya and Abdallah Hassan of Harambee Stars vs Egypt.

    ​Which Stars can hurt Cranes?

    Here are the players who have the potential to trouble the neighbours during this week's qualifier:
  • Joseph Okumu of Harambee Stars and Kenya.

    Joseph Okumu

    The towering KAA Gent defender is expected to marshall the back-four. He has the ability to build the game from the back and has an eye for a long pass when need be. He is also lethal in the air and can score from set-pieces. 
  • Erick Ouma of Kenya.

    ​Eric Ouma

    Known for his pace, it is always tough for any winger to beat Ouma. During the attack, the AIK defender can cross from the left for the strikers to convert. He is one of the reliable players who can defend and attack at the same time.
  • Kenneth Muguna of Kenya and Harambee Stars vs Tanzania Taifa Stars.

    ​Kenneth Muguna

    The newly signed Azam FC midfielder is one of the most experienced players in the Harambee Stars squad. Having played with dangerman Michael Olunga, Muguna understands his runs well which makes it easier for him to provide an assist.
  • Abdallah Hassan, Kevin Kimani and Lawrence Juma of Kenya and Harambee Stars.

    ​Abdallah Juma

    The Bandari FC winger has been on target for two out of three recent Kenya matches, with the latest one coming against Togo in recent Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. His pace is enough to scare any defender and always possesses a threat.
  • Michael Olunga of Kenya and Harambee Stars.

    ​Michael Olunga

    He has been Kenya's main striker in recent years. He has the pace and physique, and his ability to score from any angle makes him a nightmare for any defender. Hopes of Harambee Stars scoring rest somewhat on Olunga's shoulders.
