Harambee Stars is preparing to face Egypt for African Cup of Nations qualifiers few days from now. Stars need to win the match to revive their ambitions of qualifying. Harambee Stars has three points from four matches. Egypt and Comoros leads the group with eight points. Kenya and Togo are in position three and four respectively.

Harambee Stars has a chance of qualifying for the prestigious African Cup of Nations Tournament if only it wins all its two matches. Winning against the Pharaohs in Nairobi will be crucial. This time round, the sensational forward Michael Olunga will be available after he missed against Comoros at home and away due to Covid-19 rules back in October 2020. He has been instrumental in his club scoring in almost every match he has been involved in Qatar League.
In my view, if Olunga will be partnered upfront with mercurial Kariobangi Sharks striker Eric Kapaito and Hassan Abdalla then getting goals will be easy. If Michael Olunga gets crosses from the two he will have easy task in scoring against Egypt.

Remember, Olunga has pace, dribbling skills and he is fantastic in aerial balls. In yesterday's friendly match against Tanzania the two proved to be great upfront as they scored a goal apiece thereby helping Stars to win by two goals to one.
