Kahata Optimistic Harambee Stars Can Beat Mali With A Five Goal Marjin As Well.

Kenya international Francis Kahata has stated it will not be a surprise to him if the Harambee Stars defeat Mali in this weekend's World Cup qualifier by the same scoreline they were beaten by earlier this week.

On Thursday, the East Africans fell 5-0 to Group E leaders the Eagles.

Ibrahima Kone - who scored a hat-trick - and Adama Traore combined for four goals in the first half of the match in neutral Morocco. In the second half, Farouk Shikhalo scored an own goal to make it five for the West Africans.

However, the Sidama Coffee Sporting Club player is confident that Engin Firat's side can repeat the feat in Sunday's rematch.

"I'm sure no player was thrilled with the result on Thursday; no one can be satisfied with that outcome," Kahata said on Saturday to Goal.

"Yes, it was a horrible performance, but since those on the squad are representing us, we feel they can redeem themselves at home in the next match."

Everything is football in football, so it won't surprise us if we win 5-0 as well."

With two points, Kenya is in third place in Group E. In their previous encounters, they had drawn 0-0 and 1-1 ties with Uganda and Rwanda, respectively.

Do you think Harambee Stars have a chance?
