Stars stun Antelopes

NAIROBI, Kenya, March 26- Harambee Stars kept alive their chances of qualifying for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations alive with a dramatic 2-1 win over Angola on Saturday.

It was a bitter sweet day for Inter Milan midfielder MacDonald Mariga who scored the stunning winner in the 89th minute but was immediately sent off after receiving a second yellow card for taking off his shirt in the celebration that ensued at the Nyayo National Stadium.

The Black Antelopes went ahead in the 20th minute through former Manchester United striker Manucho who took advantage of lax Stars defending and chipped over the onrushing home keeper Arnold Origi.

Jamal Mohamed tied the game at 1-1 three minutes after coming on in the second half to give the home side something to feed on after being pressurized by the Antelopes for most of the afternoon.

    The win for Harambee Stars should signal the start of better things to come. Can we use this moment to put our house in order? My appeal for the governing body is to put the interest of soccer first instead of having an uneven playing field when it comes to the upcoming elections!
