securing a Cup quarter-final spot, but that will now be far more

avoid flirting with relegation," head coach Felix Ochieng said prior to their opening game.
Kenya still have to take-on England and Wales in their pool matches, which will take place at 6.12 and 10.14 AM Saturday.
The team is currently ranked 12th in the overall standings with 29 points and Wales are just one place above them on 32 points.
