Kimanzi arrives in Tunis to boost U-20 women

NAIROBI, Kenya, April 13- Harambee Stars head coach Francis Kimanzi arrived in Tunis on Friday ahead of the World Cup Under 20 women qualifier that will see the hosts take on Kenya.

His arrival will boost the team that has held two training sessions since arriving in the country where they are seeking to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg in Nairobi a fortnight ago.

The team’s head of delegation Hussein Terry said the girls were charged for the encounter despite heading to the game that will kick-off at 6pm Kenyan time on the back foot.

Angeline Mwikali, the head of the women’s game at Football Kenya Federation added, “We were well received by our hosts and all is in place, the weather is a bit chilly but the girls have adapted well,” on phone from Tunisia.

The team’s head coach Florence Adhiambo named an 18 strong squad for the return leg set for the Municipal de la Gambalia Stadium.

She maintained the same squad that played the Carthage Eaglets in Nairobi and will again be without prolific goal getter Jacqueline Ogall who is still out injured since Kenya played Zambia away in the previous round.

“We have had to rearrange our attack due to her absence but our game plan is to attack right from the whistle since we noticed that the Tunisians can not withstand pressure in their goal area,” she said before departure to Tunis on Wednesday.

SQUAD

Pauline Atieno, Neddy Atieno, Jacqueline Ashitsa, Sharon Busienei, Doris Anyango, Wendy Ann Achieng, Mural Auma, Susan Wairimu, Maurice Achieng, Terry Ouko, Naomi Kwamboka, Euphresia Khakasi, Bridget Namalwa, Lilian Adera, Cynthia Khavaya, Joyce Anyango, Nelly Auma.
