Kenya finally leave for Cape Verde after pay dispute deal

16 November 2015, 16:22

Nairobi - Kenya finally left Nairobi on Monday for their 2018 World Cup qualifier in Cape Verde after settling a pay dispute with the national football federation.

The Harambee Stars were scheduled to leave on Saturday and will now arrive only 24 hours before Tuesday's second round return leg tie.

The players had boycotted training following the Football Kenya Federation's (FKF) failure to pay their outstanding allowances and refund expenses for the overseas-based players.

A special flight carrying the team left the Kenyan capital Monday afternoon for the eight-hour trip to the capital of Cape Verde, Praia.

"It is good that we shall arrive late in Cape Verde. The players will not affected by the weather changes before the match," team manager Willis Waliaula told AFP.

Kenya coach Bobby Williamson has made two changes to the team which beat Cape Verde 1-0 in the first leg in the Kenyan capital last Friday.

He has brought in Zambia-based striker David Keli and defender Brian Mandela of the South African premier league side Maritzburg United to replace Allan Wanga, who is unavailable and suspended Teddy Okumu.

Kenya need a draw in Praia to reach the World Cup group qualifying phase.
