Kenya’s military side, Ulinzi Stars, will play Tanzania in perhaps the most anticipated football match at the ongoing East Africa Military Games at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi, Monday afternoon.
The duo have made this encounter a can’t-miss affair over the years and the stakes aren’t any lower this time round.
The 3pm kickoff will see Tanzania aim to make it two wins from two and prevent Ulinzi’s early charge at the title.
The hosts currently lead the standings on 4 points but having played a game more than Tanzania who are only a point behind.
Both teams collected easy wins in their opening matches with Kenya thumping Burundi 4-0 thanks to Oscar Wamalwa’s hat-trick. Tanzania were even more emphatic against the Burundian side who they walliped 7-3.
Kenya were held to a barren stalemate by Uganda in their second match last Friday and will need their scoring boots back on if they are to get a result against the Tanzanians who would love nothing more than hitting the hosts in their own battle yard.
