Wanyama focussed ahead of Mauritius clash

27 July 2015, 14:06

Nairobi - Kenya's senior football team's captain Victor Wanyama has called for focus ahead of their upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifier against Mauritius.

Wanyama, who plays for English Premier League side Southampton, wants Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to start preparations for what promises to be a tough encounter against Mauritius.

“I am happy with the World Cup draws but we have to be reminded it can never be a walk in the park as Mauritius are a very good side with pedigree," he told Supersport.com 

"It would be wrong to look down on any team if at all we want to qualify as the football dynamics in Africa have changed drastically.” 

“We have to embark on serious and timely preparations to avoid last-minute disappointments. FKF have to ensure they organise themselves in a timely fashion to ensure the team gets ample preparations. 

“With many friendly matches and good plans going into the matches, we have a herculean task but we have very good players who  can do the job as long as everything is put in place appropriately.

“Every player’s dream is to qualify for the World Cup and we have to put into account that we have rounds against Mauritius and Cape Verde who are currently riding high to be assured of the group stages.”
