in Moroni, Comoros
Genk midfielder Ayub Timbe says he expected to score from a free-kick which earned Harambee Stars a crucial 1-1 draw against Comoros in Friday's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
The youngster struck his debut goal for Kenya from a well taken free-kick and despite Comoros pulling a goal back, Stars’ held on to advance on 2-1 aggregate.
"I was delighted when we got the free-kick and told players standing around me that I would score. I looked and saw that the goalkeeper had exposed his back and calmly took the shot.
"I think we did our best as a team. We came here to get this result and we got it and that is great. Now we must look to the future and do even better,” Timbe told Goal in Comoros.
Apart from scoring with a sublime free-kick, Timbe also had a great game in midfield exhibiting great skills which frustrated their opponents. Timbe is returning to the team after controversially declining to turn out for Stars’ due to problems with Football Kenya Federation.
