Harambee Stars Abroad: Goal for Eric Johanna as Jesse Were shine against Ian Otieno

Kenya is slated to take on Egypt in a 2021 AFCON Qualifier on November 14 and Futaa looks at how her foreign-based players called to camp for the tie fared over the weekend.

In Swede, midfielder Eric Johanna was on the scoresheet as his IF Bromma side battled to a 2-2 draw against Sodra in the Swedish Superettan League on Sunday 3 November.

Omondi’s 13th-minute strike was the difference as both teams headed for the half time break but hosts Sodra restored parity in the 62nd minute through Hamidovic before taking the lead through Smylie six minutes later. Fallenius was to ensure Bromma was to pick a point away from home with a goal deep in stoppage time. Omondi was to be substituted for Brazilian Liliu in the 73rd minute.

In Zambia, striker Jesse Were scoring streak continued as he bagged a brace in Zesco United’s 2-0 win over Red Arrows. In the game midfielder Anthony Akumu also featured as defender David ‘Calabar’ Owino sat out with their opponents having custodian Ian Otieno in goal.

Defenders Harun Shakava and Musa Mohammed were once again the preferred center back pairing when Nkana registered a 1-0 win over Nakambala Leopards. The game saw another Kenyan in Duncan Otieno miss the clash due to suspension.

In Sweden, left-back Erick Ouma amassed full minutes as Vasalunds IF registered a 3-1 win away to Sandkiven; his only blemish in the game being an 89th-minute yellow card.

Still, in Sweden, defender Joseph Okumu was an unused substitute as IF Elfsborg picked the three points in their 2-1 win over Helsingborg on Saturday.

In China, Ayub Timbe was introduced in the 54th minute for Elvis Manu as Beijing Renhe lost 1-4 to Guangzhou R&F in a Chinese Super League clash staged on Friday.

In the Japanese J2 league, Michael Olunga managed to feature in the entire game as Kashiwa Reysol went down 2-1 to Omiya Ardija on Saturday 2 November.

In Belgium, midfielder Johanna Omollo was an unused substitute after Cercle Brugge lost another game this time against Vincent Kompany's Anderlecht. The 2-1 loss didn’t help their course of trying to rise on the league log as the team currently sits bottom with four points.

Captain Victor Wanyama once again was missing in action as Tottenham Hotspurs were held to a One-all draw by Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.
