Mares face hostile crowd in Kenya


The Mares face a hostile crowd in Kenya this afternoon as the team enters the final stretch of the 2024 Women's Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) qualifiers. The Mares will square off against Kenya in the first leg of the WAFCON final round of qualifiers in a tie set for the Nyanyo National Stadium in Nairobi.

As per media reports in Kenya, the local fans have vowed to fill up the 30,000-capacity venue as entry is free of charge. The Harambee Starlets, as the team is affectionately called, have gained a better support base following a good run of results and today's tie could have the highest number of fans in a women's football game in Kenya.

"We have played away so many times since we started our qualifiers. We played Gabon away first, we also played Tanzania away first, and we played Zambia away in a different competition. In terms of the home fans coming to support their team, we are not worried about it.
