Former Gor Mahia coach Bobby Williamson, who is now the national team coach, may be starting to understand the monumental task ahead of him. Harambee stars were blanked 3-0 by the Atlas Lions of Morocco. This is a team that used to be among the strongest in Africa but of late has had difficulty even qualifying for the Africa Nations cup.
All three goals came in the last 12 minutes after Harambee stars, employing a defensive formation, had held the Atlas Lions for 77 minutes. Reports suggest Calabar was solid as evidenced by the tackle in the highlight above. However coach Williamson has his work cut out when it comes to sorting out his defense. All three goals came from poor execution of the offside trap and poor coordination.
The other Kenyan in the squad was Jerim Onyango who was in the bench. Timothy Otieno pulled out due to injury. Harambee stars have lost three of their last four games and drawn one.
