Amrouche confident of 2015 AFCON ticket
Nairobi - Suspended Kenya coach Adel Amrouche is convinced
the national team can still secure their place at the 2015 Africa Cup of
Nations, even without him at the helm.
The tactician was banned from all football activities for
one year after CAF found him guilty of spitting at a match official during
their first-round AFCON qualifier against Comoros in May.
The Harambee Stars are next in action against Lesotho in a
must-win fixture on Sunday, having lost the first leg of their second-round
qualifier 1-0 in June, and although he will not be in the dugout, Amrouche is
convinced the team have the quality and know how to secure the result they
"We are attaching a lot of importance to this game.
It's like a final, which we must win to advance to the group stages," he
"I would rather focus on the match ahead,
although I believe justice will prevail at CAF. I know the players will do well
in my absence."
