Kenya coach picks Zim as the most tricky opponent in Afcon Qualifiers Group J

Kenya national team coach Engin Firat believes Zimbabwe pose a tricky test for his side following a 2025 Afcon Qualifiers draw held on Thursday.

The Harambe Stars were drawn in Group J along with the Warriors, Cameroon and Namibia.

The East Africans hosts Zimbabwe in their first match of the qualifying campaign in September.

Speaking to Pulse Sports, Firat warned his charges not to underestimate the Warriors.

“We are in a tough group, especially Zimbabwe. They are only in pot four because they dropped down during the ban, but if you look at the quality of their players, most of them are playing in big leagues, such as the Turkish Super League,” the gaffer told the publication.

“Marshall Munetsi is playing in France, Jordan Zemura is playing in Italy’s Serie A. There are players in Ligue 1, and even players like Tino Kadewere. Others are playing in England, such as Leon Chiwome, who is in the Premier League with Wolves.

“They have some good players. Of course, people who don’t look at this do not realize how strong they are. The other teams, you know the quality of their squads. It will not be easy, but for us, it will not change anything.”
