"Kenya Can Qualify For World Cup 2022" Kenyan International Clifton Miheso rates Harambee Chances

Kenyan international Clifton Miheso is confident Harambee Stars can write history by qualifying for their first-ever World Cup tournament in 2022. 

Harambee Stars landed a favourable draw in the Second Round of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) World Cup qualifiers after they were paired alongside Uganda, Rwanda and Mali.

Miheso believes that their upturn in form in the last four matches can spur them to seal a place in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

“I believe we have a huge chance of qualifying for our first ever World Cup because we have teams such as Uganda, Mali and Rwanda, these are teams that we have played regularly. With the unity, coaches and the Federation, we have I believe we can qualify.”

“If you look at the recent results we have posted in the past four games they have been decent, if we build on from there I know qualification will not be hard,” said Miheso in an interview with K24.

The former AFC Leopards winger was a late inclusion to the Harambee Stars squad following his impressive performance for Gor Mahia against Bidco where he was involved in three goals.

Miheso carried forward his decent form to the National Team and assisted Abdalla Hassan’s opener against Togo in the final African Cup of Nations qualifier match.

With the suspension of sporting activities affecting the whole sports fraternity, Miheso opened up on how he has been impacted. 

“The situation is hard because the suspension of the league has affected the players, this is our profession and it has affected our income but we hope we will overcome this pandemic and return playing football.”

“We as Gor Mahia are conducting our exercises from home, the coach gives us a training plan that we follow from home. This will be helpful when we resume the league but it’s a huge challenge because training as an individual and as a team is different,” added the winger.
