The Kenyan fans have taken Twitter to praise Harambee Stars' solid display against the Cranes in the friendly played on Sunday

Harambee Stars impressed supporters to secure a 1-1 draw against Uganda in a friendly on Sunday.

The Kenyan side had gone behind in the first half when Emmanuel Okwi rounded defender Joash Onyango and beat keeper Patrick Matasi for a deserved lead.

However, in the second half, Kenya came back a rejuvenated side and should have won the tie but managed to at least earn a draw after Kenneth Muguna scored from an Ayub Timbe pass.

Captain of the day Michael Olunga hit the woodwork twice while debut boy Boniface Muchiri of Tusker FC was unlucky too. His effort was parried away by keeper Charles Lukwago in the 93rd minute with Uganda looking unable to deal with Kenya's threats in the closing stages.
