Kenya police and Harambee stars defender Aboud Omar has revealed what they need to do if they want to win against Ivory coast in the 2026 world cup qualifiers next month.

Harambee stars will be facing the AFCON champions in Malawi on June 11th, just four days after facing Burundi at Bingu stadium.

Omar believes Kenya can beat Ivory coast if they embrace one crucial value, despite Ivory coast being on high spirits after winning the Africa cup of Nations early this year.

“They have big players, so the game will be difficult but at the National team level that does not matter,” he said.

“Even when we played against Gabon, they had players like Mario Lemina who plays for Wolves. A lot of players are experience, “He continued.

At the last AFCON Ivory coast looked disorganized which forced them to part ways with their manager Jean Gasset .

Their assistant coach Emerse Fae took charge and guided them to victory, which earned him the role   on a permanent basis.

According to Omar, Fae installed a sense of togetherness and unity within the group, something the he believes Kenya too must embrace if they want to win against them.

“If you look, Ivory coast struggled to perform at the group stages of the Last AFCON because they lacked unity, but right now, they are united especially given their knockout stage run that resulted in them winning the trophy,” he added.

“Their performance may not have been spectacular. That shows you that it is difficult to predict this kind of things. Whoever turns up better on the day gets all the 3 points.”
