Migne Rallies Fans Behind Harambee Stars Ahead Of Sunday’s Return Match Against Ethiopia


Sebastien Migne would wish to see a full Kasarani Stadium when Kenya hosts the Afcon 2019 qualifiers Group F return match against Ethiopia Sunday.

A win for Stars will see them book a ticket to the 2019 showpiece slated for Cameroon mid next year.

The French gaffer was speaking after holding the Ethiopians to a barren draw before a full packed Bahir Dar Stadium Wednesday.

“If I have one wish, I hope to have a full stadium next Sunday because its amazing to play in this atmosphere.

It was amazing to play in this stadium and it will be important if we get the same in four days,” the former Congo coach told Capital Sports.

The draw against Ethiopia took Stars’ points’ tally to four atop the three-nation group.

Group F was reduced to three teams after FIFA suspended Sierra Leone on Friday last week over government interference in the management of their FA.

Migne is proud of the away point and is now aiming for maximum points Sunday.

“The draw is a correct result for us. Maybe we should have had a penalty and maybe Ethiopia as well should have had a penalty, but I don’t know.

The referee had a very good game and I think it was also good for the fans. Now we will try and win in four days’ time.”

Harambee Stars have never been to the Afcon since 14 years ago when they graced the 2004 edition in Tunisia.
