It is the dream of every player to represent his Country in the World Cup tournament.

It is the dream of every fan to see his/her national football team gracing the World Cup tournament.

That is the burden lying on the shoulders of Harambee Stars striker Michael Ogada Olunga and his colleagues, as they prepare to take on Uganda in Group E's World Cup qualifier match.

The match will be played in Nairobi on Thursday this week, signalling the start of gruelling World Cup qualifier fixtures in a group that consists of Rwanda and Mali.

The World Cup will be held in Qatar next year.

Football fans in the Country now want Olunga yo score against Uganda on Thursday and eventually lead Harambee Stars to the World Cup for the first time in history.

Coincidentally, Olunga plies his trade with Al-Duhail in Qatar. He has already joined Stars camp for preparations ahead of the match.

Turning on social media on Thursday, fans asked him to ensure he scores against Uganda and see Kenya through to Qatar.

"I expect two goals from you engineer. Hope you will make it. Remember Kenyans rely on you 98%," said Evans Ogara.

"Tupigie hii shughuli bro. (Do this for us). Make us proud tufikishe World Cup for the first time. I know you can do it bro " posted Nicholas Omondi.

"Sahi msipofika World Cup, hakuna siku ingine. Mjitume (If you fail to qualify for the World Cup, there is no other time. Try your best)," added Ibrah Kadabrah.

"Raundi hii mtupeleke World Cup (This time round take us to the World Cup)," insisted Ommian Coffex.
