KENYA U17 team in COSAFA defeat

By Richard Munga

Kenya’s under-17 team failed to qualify for the COSAFA Cup semifinals after falling to a 5-0 defeat to Malawi in one sided clash.

Having played the last Group B game and with only the top two teams in the group qualifying, Kenya could not make the three points needed to book a ticket to the semifinals.

Kenya started off on the wrong foot in the 19th minute when Francis Nzuze headed in a beautiful cross before Peter Banda doubled the lead just minutes into the second half.

Two more goals from Banda and another by Francis Madinga sealed the rout for Malawi. Kenya, who were the guest nation in the tournament, managed only one win against Madagascar after losing to Zambia and Malawi
