I am afraid Ghana might not make out of the group.

Harambee Stars thrash Ethiopia at thunderous Kasarani

Stars will qualify to the Cup of Nations with the win if the Confederation of African Football will confirm the expulsion of Sierra Leone from the qualifiers with the West Africans currently under a FIFA ban. Their match against Ghana was called off pending a decision from the continental body/CFM NEWS

Stars will qualify to the Cup of Nations with the win if the Confederation of African Football will confirm the expulsion of Sierra Leone from the qualifiers with the West Africans currently under a FIFA ban. Their match against Ghana was called off pending a decision from the continental body/CFM NEWS
NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 14 – Harambee Stars’ dream of qualifying for 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) remained on track Sunday after displaying a brilliant performance, skinning Ethiopia’s Walia Ibex 3-0 in a Group F qualifying match at a fully packed Moi Sports Centre Kasarani.

Despite playing for only 72 minutes, skipper Victor Wanyama gave in a solid performance, perhaps one of the best in the national team jersey and capped it off with Kenya’s third goal in the triumph that took them to seven points on top of the group and very close to the Cup of Nations.

Sumptuous first half goals by Michael Olunga and Eric Johannah put Stars on their way before Wanyama sealed the victory with a 66th minute penalty.

Stars will qualify to the Cup of Nations with the win if the Confederation of African Football will confirm the expulsion of Sierra Leone from the qualifiers with the West Africans currently under a FIFA ban. Their match against Ghana was called off pending a decision from the continental body.

If the West Africans are reinstated, a high unlikelihood, then Kenya will only need to beat them in Nairobi next month to confirm their place in the Cup of Nations.

-Solid Performance

On Sunday though, Stars gave a performance worth every fans’ time.

In a full to capacity Kasarani Stadium, Stars were met with a thunderous crowd and from the first minute, it was evident their morale and motivation for three points was unquestionable.

The home boys took control of the match from the first whistle with the partisan crowd cheering every move and every pass.

Stars created the first danger at goal in the third minute of the game when Johannah broke away on the right before delivering a sumptuous cross into the area, but Ethiopian centre back Anteneh Tesfaye turned it behind for a corner.

He was fortunate as his block almost turned into an own goal, but good for him he was a yard off his goalmouth.

Four minutes later, Ouma found the ball at the edge of the box after Olunga battled with three Ethiopian defenders to poke it forward, but the former’s low shot went wide off target.

The Ethiopians had a temporary period of domination where they took the ball and played their trademark passing game, trying to open up the Kenyan backline that has not conceded a single goal in three games.

They had half chances with skipper Getaneh Kebede striking a shot wide from the right while Shemeles Bekele also tried with a freekick from the right which went wide.

But Stars, not about to be cowed infront of their home fans took back control and it didn’t take long before they added goals to dominance.

-Olunga beauty

Olunga opened the scores in the 23rd minute in the most sumptuous of ways, curling the ball with his stronger left foot into the far post after Johannah had touched down the ball for him.

The crowd roared in deafening crescendo as they appreciated not only the fact that Kenya was a goal ahead, but the manner in which the goal was sent home by the engineer, a beautiful goal, one for the ages and the scrapbooks.

Four minutes later, Stars would be two up and Kasarani would explode with Johannah striking another beauty of a goal with his weaker left foot.

The midfielder picked up the ball at the edge of the box after Francis Kahata had missed a header off a well delivered cross and the Sweden based midfielder took the shot on the first touch, curling it beyond keeper Samson Asefa who was left astounded.

With the two goal cushion, Stars dominated play with the Ethiopians feeling the heat of the atmosphere created at the Stadium.

At the break, Stars would almost go three up when Brian mandela’s header off a Johannah cross was blocked a yard from the line with keeper Asefa beaten.

In the second half, Stars started on the front foot and their early pressing bore fruit after 66 minutes when Johannah was brought down as he skillfully went past an Ethiopian defender.

-Wanyama goal

Skipper Wanyama stepped up to the pressure and made no mistake, sending the keeper the wrong way to seal the victory. He was however substituted after 72 minutes after picking up a muscle strain, a worry for his club Tottenham Hotspur.

Johannah, arguably with a man of the match performance was also brought off after picking an injury and his place taken by Ismail Gonzalez.

Ghana will be fine. Remember they beat Ethiopia 5-0 and people are not taking into account that they have played 2 less games than the other teams.

3 of Ethiopias points are against Sierra Leone, so if SL gets disqualified either Ethiopia will lose 3 points, or Ghana will gain 6.

When all is said and done Ghana and Kenya will qualify from this group.

you have no clue of what you are talking about.

Simple math.

There are 24 teams in the upcomming edition

There are 12 groups of 4 teams, meaning 2 teams from each group automatically qualify.

Again homie SIMPLE MATHS. It aint really that hard to understand I dont know why people are making something so complicated that is very simple.

It seems bonehead VE might be right. Unlike previous qualifiers no group with 5 teams. All groups have 4 teams so two qualifies regardless of suspension

VE,

You are wrong for sure. Yes, there are 24 teams to qualify from 12 groups. That much is correct.

However, in Cameroon's group, Cameroon qualifies regardless of its finish because it is the host team. Let's assume for a moment that Cameroon finishes last in that group. It still qualifies even though it does not finish top two. THAT IS CORRECT. How many teams get through in such scenario, Cameroon last and yet two must qualify from each group? Answer 25 teams. That is where your math fails, my brother.

The point, therefore, is you may end up correct ONLY if Cameroon does finish among the top 2 but certainly wrong if Cameroon does not, then there has to be a tie-breaker to determine the second-placed team that gets through from Cameroon and Ghana's group in order to get to 24 teams. That is my tuppence.

The Cameroon group has nothing to do with any other group, if u read the rules 2 teams from every group qualifies. From Cameroons group only ONE other team can qualify. What happens in Cameroon group does not affect any other group.

VE

I read the rules. However, the rules did not envisage having another group with effectively seeking qualification as is the case with Cameroon's group. If the rules are blind to this development then I surely would expect the secondplaced team in Cameroon's group (assuming Cameroon finishes out of top 2) to protest. That surely will not be fair.

How can 2 teams out of 3 qualify from a group? That makes no sense. If it comes down to it, it will be down to the best 3rd place team from the other groups. Right now Ghana is in deep dodo and they know it. That's why tfco is as quiet as a church rat this weekend.

Kenya( I cant believe I am saying this) actually look good. They outclassed the Injera boys of Ethiopia and beat them well 3-0. I don't see Ghana in her current state beating Kenya even in Kumasi. Even Ethiopia at home is a handful.

Oga,
Ghana only needs to
1) beat Ethiopia in Ethiopia (as easy as a man peeing in a bottle)
2) beat Kenya in Kumasi (as easy as Naija police taking bribe)

Easier said than done. Ghana is $@#% right now and Kenya is in good form. Ethiopia is also very difficult to beat in Addis. I would be quiet if I was you.

Ghana is fine. They beat Ethiopia 5-0.

They can even lose to Ethiopia and still be fine.

Remember if SL is disqualified Ethiopia loses 3 points.

It makes perfect sense.

2 teams from each group qualify. PERIOD.

It doesn't matter if a team gets disqualified , there are 2 teams from each group guaranteed. There are no other permutations, it's the top 2 in EVERY group.

I will NOT be quiet :laugh:
Ghana already qualified. Think about yourselves

Libya 1-0 Nigeria
South Africa 2-1 Nigeria (on Thu 15/11/18 )

Wow! Kenya should have won by at least 5 goals. Olunga missed easy chances.
