The Kenya women national team Harambee Starlets left for Lilongwe, Malawi on Sunday 25 August ahead of the Wednesday 28 August clash in the 2020 Olympic Games, with key attention set to be placed on the defence.
Head coach David Ouma guided the team to a 3 – 2 win over Ethiopia in the only warm up game ahead of this clash and opines that the biggest improvement the team needs is in defence.
With a good run at home, the Starlets tactician knows a favorable result in Lilongwe will go a long way in aiding the team’s ambitions.
“We were quite vulnerable in defense in our friendly match against Ethiopia and this is what we have been working on in training. I am confident we will be stronger at the back and that way, we can have possibilities of even getting a winner,” he said ahead of departure.
The second leg has been slated for Sunday, September 1, at the MISC Kasarani, with the winner on aggregate set to face either of Gabon or Ghana in the third round.
