Kenya out to break Namibia jinx

Kenya coach Francis Kimanzi is determined to help his team finally beat Namibia when the two sides meet in a crucial African Nations Cup and World Cup qualifier next month.

The east Africans are second in Group Two, with seven points from their opening four games, and only trail leaders Guinea on goal difference with two games remaining in the joint qualifying campaign.

The Harambee Stars have a woeful record against the Namibians, losing their last three meetings, but victory is a must if they are to have any hope of a place in the final round of qualifying, with their last group game being a tough trip to Guinea.

The last defeat was a 2-1 defeat in the Namibian captial in May, but the coach is confident they can put aside past meetings and triumph over the Brave Warriors on September 6.

'I never believe in past results,' he told The Standard newspaper. 'I want to prepare a strong team and see what will happen this time.

'If it is a jinx I can assure you it is going to end this time. But I don't perceive it to be one because we were the better side in Windhoek and only lacked concentration in the dying minutes.'

Kimanzi's task has been made tougher by the absence of two key players, with goalkeeper Arnold Origi injured and Auxerre striker Denis Oliech suspended.

However, he is confident his squad, which includes five new caps, can break their Namibia jinx.

He added: 'Most of them don't even know about our record with Namibia and all they want is to win and win comfortably.

'I know the importance of the match and we are going to handle it with a lot of caution and seriousness but we are not under any pressure.'
