Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
After sharing the spoils with Egypt and Togo, Kenya will be looking to record their first win in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers when they take on Comoros at Nyayo National Stadium. The Kenyans did well to beat Zambia in October friendly, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of Wednesday’s qualifier. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Kenya midfielder Eric Johana Omondi, who has netted eight goals for Jonkopings Sodra in the Swedish second tier so far this term.
Comoros, on the other hand, are leading the standings ahead of round 3. Les Coelacantes aim to retain top position, but beating Kenya on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the horizon in Nairobi, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Crvena Zvezda attacker El Fardou Ben is undisputedly the biggest star in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Victor Wanyama):
Over the years Victory Wanyama has established himself as one of the best Kenyan footballers. Wanyama started his senior career at Belgian club Beerschot and after scoring 2 goals in 51 appearances in the league for de Ratten, he moved to Celtic in 2011.
The defensive midfielder, who is very strong in the tackle, decided to leave the Hoops in 2013, signing a deal with Premier League side Southampton for a fee of £12.5 million.During his spell at St. Mary’s Stadium Victory Wanyama established himself as a first-team regular at Southampton and thanks to his thrilling displays with the Saints, Tottenham Hotspur chiefs made a tempting offer for the Kenya international.
In 2016 Wanyama signed a four-year deal with the capital club and he has been playing for Spurs ever since. The Tottenham midfielder was born in Nairobi on June 25, 1991 and he made his international debut for the Kenya national team in a friendly against Nigeria in May, 2007.
Highlighted Team (Kenya):
Kenya national football team represents Kenya on the international stage. Controlled by Football Kenya Federation, the Harambee Stars welcome their rivals at Moi International Sports Centre. Kenya have yet to qualify for the FIFA World Cup finals, but in 2019 they will compete at the Africa Cup of Nations for the sixth time in the history of the national team.
The Kenyans were drawn with Senegal, Algeria and Tanzania in Group C. The Harambee Stars are well known for their red kit (home), but they wear both white and green colours when the playing on the travels as well. Kenya faced Uganda in their first ever international game, with the team sharing the spoils (1-1) with Uganda in Nairobi.
The Harambee Stars recorded their biggest win against Zanzibar (10-0) on October, 1961 and four years later they were outclassed by Ghana 12-2, which is considered the team’s biggest defeat.
