Shining Stars back on Sunday

NAIROBI, Kenya, November 12- Harambee Stars and Seychelles are scheduled to arrive in the country for their second leg 2014 World Cup pre-qualifier on Sunday.

Kenya are on the verge of sealing their place in the group stages of the African qualifiers after a Dennis Oliech double added to the Pascal Ochieng 41st minute opener to lead Francis Kimanzi’s side to a comprehensive 3-0 away win.

“My team played at around 20 percent of what I had asked them to and qualification is all but assured. The remaining thing is to go through the 90 minutes on Tuesday and then we begin planning for the group stages,” Kimanzi who was re-appointed to the head coach role last week remarked post-match.

The teams are expected to check-in at 4:15pm local time (+3GMT) on a shared flight from the Island nation.

Following defeat, Seychellois coach, Jean-Louis Ralph said only a miracle would suffice for his team in Nairobi if they are to overturn the deficit.

“I did not expect them to come out the way they did. They played very well but I was surprised by the intensity they attacked my team and now, it’s practically all over,” Ralph confessed.

However, Kenyan fans planning to pack Nairobi’s Nyayo National Stadium on Tuesday to roar on their team will be disappointed after football authorities disclosed they would only print 18,000 tickets, 12,000 less than the venue’s capacity.

The game that will kick-off under floodlights starting at 6pm local time will see only 2,000 VIP tickets costing Sh1,000 ($10.5) each issued
