Nairobi - As Kenya's women's hockey side take on South Africa in their next Africa
Cup of Nations fixture, they are feeling confident that can mount up a
serious enough challenge to really push the hosts.
Having last beaten South Africa in 1993 in a 3-1 victory, Kenya will
have to do so again if they are to cement their place in the Rio 2016
Olympics, as the Africa Cup of Nations is also African qualifiers for
the Olympic Games.
However, Midfielder Caroline Guchu is feeling optimistic on their chances of beating the host nation.
"South Africa are a good side, they are playing well and are at home; so, the pressure will be on them," she told nation.co.ke.
"But we have to match them in every department and fight for every ball."
