    #1 Musa Mohammed

    The Nkana FC defender was at it again against the Walya Antelopes, stopping the attackers from hurting the goalkeeper. Formed a formidable partnership with Brian Mandela and went on to register a third clean sheet in the qualifiers. One of the key players if Stars are to perform better consistently.

  2. Goal Kenya.

    #2 Dennis Odhiambo

    No words to express Odhiambo’s performance! He knew what to do from the word go and went on to put a perfect display. Stopped Ethiopia from playing the ball through the midfield and was cool when on it. His passing was also on point and he managed to give Victor Wanyama an easy time.

  3. Goal Kenya.

    #3 Victor Wanyama

    The captain had to respond following last Wednesday's below per display. He held his nerves and passed the ball under pressure and pushed the team forward whenever there was a chance. The Tottenham star rounded off his good display with a third goal that sealed the win for Kenya.

  4. Goal Kenya.

    #4 Erick Johanna

    It was his day! The former Mathare United ace put up a man of the match display after creating two goals and scored one to help the Stars secure their seventh point in the campaign. He was composed and knew what to do with the ball. Johanna should have easily bagged a brace.

  5. Goal Kenya.

    #5 Michael Olunga

    Olunga was really desperate for a goal and it came in a critical time to cool the nerves of the home fans. He did not give the rival defenders time to relax and when on the ball, he played with his teammates. Wasted two great chances, but that did not darken his good display.
