Fans can watch the Kenya vs. Zambia football match live online and see which team can get a boost in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying round.
The teams will meet Sunday in Nairobi’s Nyayo National Stadium, with kickoff scheduled for 3 p.m. CAT.
Both teams are chasing Congo, which moved atop Group E thanks to a 4-2 win over Guinea Bissau on Saturday. Congo is now four points up, and Zambia coach George Lwandamina said he’s hoping Sunday’s match can turn things around.
His players agree.
“We have not had a smooth, run in the qualifiers but this is different we just have to be positive,” Zambia goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene told Lusakatimes.com. “There are a lot of changes in the team which are positive, so sooner than later it will pay off.”
As if the pressure wasn’t high enough for Zambia, president Edgar Lungu may have just increased it even more. Visiting the team during a training session, he said it would be embarrassing for the team to lose to Kenya.
Lungu added that Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta invited him for a state visit, and he wants to go with his “head held high.”
“Guys where you are going you need to win,” he said in Bemba (via the Times of Zambia). “I have been invited by the President there and I want to meet him with my head high. If you lose, how is he going to welcome me? Losing will be embarrassing.”
“When playing, you should use physiology so that you can win the game. The nation is behind you, if you lose you will kill us with high blood pressure. I know you can win and you will win,” President Lungu added.
Fans who watch the Kenya vs. Zambia football match live online will see two teams facing pressure. Kenya also see the match as a critical one, with Football Kenya Federation President Sam Nyamweya saying the qualifying match will be a test of how far Kenya can go in the tournament.
“This is a very important match for Kenya because if we win, it will put us in a good place to be able to qualify for the 2017 finals,” he told Goal.com. “We have therefore invested heavily and brought home 16 foreign based players to ensure the team does not lack in anything.”
