Kenya will be facing Burundi in the semi finals of the cecafa cup finals.The other final is between Tanzania vs South Sudan. Kenya defeated South Sudan by 2.0.while Tanzanian side defeated Congo by 1.0.
If kenya defeats Burundi, they will face either Tanzania or South Sudan. Tanzania defeated kenya in the Olympic qualifiers and that should be a morale booster for the Kenyan side. According to FIFA ranking, Kenya is ahead of all the teams that have booked places in the semi finals. If kenya uses it's prowess then the silverware could be ours.
The form of Reagan Otieno and Benson Omalla is something we can't assume. The two youngerstars have proven once and again why they deserved a place ahead of Abdalla Hassan and Musa Masika. Reagan Otieno has three goals in the tournament while Benson Omalla has two goals. Both players are among the best scorers of the tournament.
Tactically, Kenya seems to have striked a deal that has been seeing them win matches at ease. Stanley Okumbi and Salim Ali have been doing well with the boys.If the clips posted on the national team's official page are anything to go by, then the boys will do well I this tournament.
Uganda who are the defending champions of the cecafa under 20 have been knocked out of the tournament. That said, Kenya have everything at stake to win the trophy for the country. It is a great process that will be complete if they win the tournament. We wish the team all the best.
