Harambee Stars defender Eric ‘Marcelo’ Ouma has appealed to Kenyan fans to stand with the national team ahead of the Afcon Qualifier return leg match against Ethiopia on Sunday.
Stars will host the Walya Antelopes at the Kasarani where Sebastien Migne side will need maximum points to keep alive their dream of securing a place in the 2019 Afcon final to be held in Cameroon.
After playing out to a 0-0 draw away on Wednesday in a full packed Bahir Dar stadium, 'Marcelo' now wants the Kenyan fans to show the same patriotism that Ethiopian fans accorded Stars’ opponents. “We kindly need your support come Sunday at Kasarani Stadium!”
Meanwhile, Gor Mahia defender Philemon Otieno has called for the team to remain focused ahead of Sunday's battle. “It’s a big step in the right direction, but it’s not over yet. Now we just have to focus on the next game.”
Kenya are top of Group F with four points, same as Ethiopia while Ghana and banned Sierra Leone are third and fourth respectively, with three points each.
