The last few months have not been the best for Kenyan football fans after the terrible performances by the national football team Harambee Stars. Kenya failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations leading to the Dismissal of manager Jacob Ghost Mulee. 

Turkish manager Engin Firat took over the team for the World cup qualifiers away to Mali. The team lost both the home and away matches before registering a draw away to Uganda. 

Earlier today Kenya welcomed the Amavubi Stars of Rwanda in the last qualifying match. The manager made several changes to the starting 11 with James Saruni, Amos Nondi, Richard Odada, Eric Ouma coming in for Brian Bwire, Samuel Onyango, Omondi, and David Ochieng. 

Harambee Stars took an early lead through Michael Olunga who scored from a Knockdown by Amos Nondi. 

Richard Odada then doubled Kenya's lead from the spot. Harambee Stars were given a penalty after Eric Marcelo was fouled by the Rwanda Goalkeeper. 

Harambee Stars had several chances to increase their lead with the pace of Eric Marcelo and Abdallah Hassan proving too hard to handle throughout the first half. 

The impressive results come at a time when the country's football is faced with challenges. FKF President Nick Mwendwa was charged in court earlier today where he is accused of misappropriation of funds. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
