Musa Otieno confident in Harambee Stars squad depth

12 November 2015, 18:59

Nairobi - Kenya assistant coach Musa Otieno believes the current squad is more than good enough to deal with the absence of Ayub Timbe against Cape Verde.

The Harambee Stars tackle the island nation in Nairobi in the first leg of the World Cup qualifier on Friday, but will be without Timbe after the Belgium-based winger picked up an injury playing for his club side Lierse SK last week.

"In his absence we still have depth, we have (Kevin) Kimani, (Clifton) Miheso, (Ali) Abondo and (Christian) Bwamy who can play in a similar position," Otieno told Soka. "All have done well at club level and just need to replicate that form into national team."

Otieno has first-hand experience of what to expect from the match, having captained Kenya the last time the two sides met in the build up to the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations, but admitted Cape Verde have come a long way in the 11 years since.

"Since the last time we played with them, they have made big strides and are now number four in Africa. But we never seemed to learn from that because we have gone backward," he added.

"But we have a chance playing at home and we should be able to work and win the match. Nobody has given us a chance, we have been having some challenges but the players have come in knowing they have come to play for the nation." Otieno concluded.
