NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 7 – New Harambee Stars head coach Engin Firat started his two-month life at the Kenya football team with a huge loss after succumbing to a 5-0 defeat away to Mali in the Africa 2022 Fifa World Cup Qualifier on Thursday night.

Harambee Stars will welcome Mali in the return leg on Sunday in Nairobi.

Kenya soaked in four goals in the first half with Ibrahima Kone scoring a hat-trick while Adama Traore opened the scoring.

In the second half, Kenya conceded another goal thanks to Moussa Doumbia goal in the 85th minute.
