Kenya end World Cup win drought

09 September 2013, 09:52

Nairobi - Kenya ended a five-match win drought in the 2014 World Cup qualifying competition by edging visiting Namibia 1-0 on Sunday.

Defender David Owino scored after five minutes in Nairobi to earn the 'Harambee Stars' maximum points from their final mini-league fixture.

The result meant a change of positions on the final standings with Kenya climbing to third and Namibia dropping to last place.

African champions Nigeria won Group F Saturday by defeating Malawi 2-0 in Calabar as they look to qualify for their second straight World Cup after going out in the first round in South Africa.

Zimbabwe and Mozambique drew 1-1 in Harare, leaving the southern Africa neighbours winless after six Group G matches each.

Captain Masimba Mambare put the home side ahead just before half-time and substitute Maninho levelled on the hour mark.

Egypt were runaway winners of the group and complete their schedule Tuesday at home to second-placed Guinea in El-Gouna.

Group winners Algeria, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Senegal have qualified for two-legged play-offs.

The last place will be decided later Sunday with Cameroon requiring a draw and Libya a win in Yaounde to take Group I honours.

Cairo hosts a seeded draw on September 16 that will divide the 10 survivors into five ties, and the winners go to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup.
