Olunga strike secures Kenya a point against Burundi

Harambee Stars were forced to rally from behind to settle for a 1-1 draw against Burundi in their second group B of the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.

It took only eleven minutes for Burundi to open the scoring when  Sofapaka’s Fuadi Ndayisenga beat Cheche then set up Amisi Tambwe who easily tapped  in.

Three minutes to the break, a cross from Miheso was met by Jacob  Keli who headed it  Micheal Olunga’s way and the lanky striker turned before shooting into the net  the equalizer and his second goal of the trourament.

The outcome leaves Kenya at the top of group B on four points same as Burundi, who, however have an inferior goal difference.

Starting Eleven: Boniface Oluoch,Noah Abich,Omar Mbongi,David Ochieng,David Odhiambo,Collins Okoth,Athony Akumu, Eric Johanna,Clifton Miheso,Michael Olunga,Jacob Keli.

Substitutes: David Okello,Musa Mohamed,Christian Bwamy,Kevin Kimani,Jesse Were,Ali Abondo,Allan Wanga.
