4 Harambee Stars Players That Proved to be Undroppable After Draw

Harambee Stars hope of progressing to the African Cup of Nations were dashed after playing to a 1-1 draw against Pharaohs of Egypt. The game of two halves started with Mohamed Kashfa sending a volley against Kenya's Ian Otieno in the 2nd minute before Hassan Abdallah restored parity in the 65th minute of the game.

Despite being knocked out, Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee has already identified four very crucial and undroppable players in the squad. The four include Eric 'Marcelo' Ouma, Lawrence Juma, Kenneth Muguna and Joash Onyango.

Eric 'Marcelo' Ouma

The AIK defender was phenomenal in the left wing where he provided adequate defensive cover and also occasionally went forward and provide very dangerous crosses that went begging most of the time. His major role was to stop Mohamed Salah and he did exactly that with the Liverpool man giving very little in attack for his side.

Lawrence Juma

If there is one player who was very pivotal in the midfield then it has to be Juma. The Sofapaka man managed to distribute and wade off attack from the Egyptians who resolved to use the right wing and long balls when going forward.

Joash Onyango

Fondly known as Berlin Wall, Joash vowed to stop Salah and he did exactly that. The unfortunate early goal could not be blamed on him.

His positioning and ability to win aerial duels made long balls to earn nothing for the Pharaohs.

Kenneth Muguna

The Gor Mahia midfielder took the entire Egyptian midfield contingent out of the game and his partnership with Lawrence Juma was formidable.

Kenya are already out the cup competition as they are third on the log with 4 points five-shy the second and first placed teams. This means the last group match against already-out Togo in Lome will be a dead rubber match
