The Kenya national team Harambee Stars’ 1 – 1 draw with Zambia away at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola on Sunday 4 September will pass as a sign of the improving standards of the team.
The team’s head coach Stanley Okumbi has been speaking of the steps made by the team and lauded the effort shown in the away matches, which previously presented the biggest challenge for the team.
He is particularly happy with the brave approach to away games, pointing on the draws with Uganda (in a friendly match) and Zambia in the latest matches.
The team has been approaching home games with a lot of courage and the coach says he wants to see the same more in the away matches.
“We are really improving as a team; the past two matches have been great and the fact that we managed draws away from home shows the levels of improvement we have had because we approached the matches with fearlessness like we do at home and we should have won both.
“We have not been performing so well away from home but if the two matches were to be put in perspective then I think the future looks great. I am very happy with the improvement and confident in our abilities as a team,” he said.
