FKF Vice chairman Robert Asembo has heaped praise on the Kenyan fans who have turned up at the Namboole Stadium in Kampala to support the national soccer team Harambee Stars in the ongoing Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.
Asembo who led FKF NEC members Hussein Terry, Elly Mukolwe and the team head of delegation Doris Petra to cheer on Harambee Stars in their 1-0 quarter final triumph over Malawi, said the input of fans was critical to the progress of the national team in the regional championships.
"The fans must be lauded for showing their unrelenting support to the team. The team's performances has improved considerably with the increase of fans to the stadium and I urge more to turn up for the semi finals and final because I am sure the team is good enough to win this tournament if all goes well," said Asembo.
Stars captain Anthony Kimani also thanked the fans for their support and led the team in acknowledging their presence at the stadium in their win over the Flames.
"We are very pleased with the way the fans have been urging us on. The ball is now in our court to do well for their sake and all others who are cheering us on back at home. We are going to give our very best to try and win the title," said the Kenyan skipper. Asembo will be joined today by FKF President Sam Nyamweya and other dignitaries for the crucial semi-final clash with Zanzibar at 4pm.
