Adam was a constant threat for the Malawians in the first leg in Blantyre when they lost 3-2 and stated that scoring two goals away from home gives them the motivation that they can go all the way.

“It was tough playing away from home but we pushed ourselves and picked up something from the match.

“I am asking all our fans to stand with us as much as the match will be behind closed doors. It won’t be easy but we are motivated to get a win,” Alima is quoted by Football Kenya Federation on their website.
