Harambe ready for Malawi , as Uganda takes on Ethiopia

The Harambee Stars camp is upbeat with all players in good shape ahead of their quarter-final clash with Malawi at 2pm on Tuesday afternoon.

Goalkeeper Duncan Ochieng’ and strikers Rama Salim and Clifton Miheso, who had minor injuries, on Monday successfully passed fitness tests to get on coach James Nandwa’s list for the match.

"I intend to start Victor Ochieng’ in place of Mike Baraza to partner with Miheso or Rama Salim upfront," Nandwa said.

Malawi is an unpredictable side that started on a low note, losing 0-2 to Rwanda’s Amavubi Stars before recovering to beat Eritrea 3-2 and Zanzibar 2-0 to reach the last eight stage.

Malawi, under coach Kinnah Phiri, has versatile strikers like Chiukepo Msowoya, Ndaziona Chatsalira and Chimango Kyira.

"We have designed a plan that should contain the formidable Kenyan side," Phiri said.

Should Harambee Stars go past Malawi Flames, they will play Zanzibar in the semi-finals.

Tanzania will face the winner between Uganda and Ethiopia in the other semi-final.

Better performance

According to finals pairing, Harambee Stars could face defending champions Uganda Cranes if they make the December 8 final at Mandela National stadium.

Uganda Cranes take on Ethiopia in the last quarter-final at the Nelson Mandela National Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The two teams played each other in the group stages and Uganda won 1–0 in the Pool A clash. Ethiopia have however improved over the last few days and should put up a better performance.

Cranes coach Bobby Williamson said he had instructed his players not to underrate Ethiopia because "in football anything can happen".

He said: "We shall attack them and score goals that will ensure we book a place in the semi finals."

Ethiopia coach Seyum Kabede said although he respects defending champions Uganda, his side is capable of eliminating the hosts.

"We played Uganda at the group stages and we know we can defeat them in the quarter finals," he said.
