posted in: News | 0

Kenya held firm to draw 1-1 with Comoros and
progress to the second round of Africa Cup of
Nations qualifying 2-1 on aggregate.
Johanna Ochieng Omolo’s strike in the first leg
ensured Kenya took a 1-0 lead into Friday’s
second leg at the Stade International Said
Mohamed Cheikh de Mitsamiouli.
Adel Amrouche’s charges faced early pressure
as the hosts sought to level the tie, but Comoros
were unable to turn their dominance into goals.
The hosts were punished in the 56th minute
when Ayub Timbe Masika opened the scoring
with an expertly taken free-kick that left the
goalkeeper with no chance.
Poor defending from Kenya allowed Yacine
Saandi to level the scores on the night with 18
minutes remaining.
However, his goal proved in vain as Kenya
prevented Comoros from levelling the tie on
Mozambique were held to a 0-0 draw by South
Sudan in Friday’s other fixture, but were already
virtually certain to progress after a 5-0 first-leg
