Two first half goals saw Harambee Stars mark their 2017 CECAFA Championship on a winning note after dispatching Rwanda in Sunday 2 December tie at Bukhungu stadium.

The opener which handed Paul to put a winning bow also had Kenya avenging the 2015 semifinal defeat from the Rwandans.

CECAFA 2017: Amavubi yamaze iminota 40 bakina ari 10 yatsinzwe na KenyaSoter was given a red card and that rendered the national team sleepless spree as he Kenyan  handed a defensive boost to start off with. His shut-out was never down to Rwandese not trying but the keeper's vigilance.

The keeper had up to four dangerous on target attempt saved as the last line of Kenya's defense. Made his commanding presence from aerial ball and timed his occasional moves out of goal quite perfectly.

A combative player who also worked in silence with less disappointment was named Duncan Otieno. The Leopards skipper once more proved faithful to the assigned duty of shielding Kenyan back line against the threats of Rwanda Police attacking trio preferred by Antoine Hey.

Made a good rotation play along with Patilah Omoto and capped his fine game with an unstoppable rocket for his debut the midfielder got a moment to savour.

Kenya's player in the opener, his tireless display saw the attacking midfielder getting the Rwandese back line worked up as he exploited the pockets of space between them. His ball spreading, vision and fighting back possession was not bad.

Whereas Odhiambo used his pace and dribbling skills to cancel out Rwandese, Onyango displayed good judgment when to keep possession and when to let go. Atudo, whose penalty eliminated Rwandese in 2013 edition, rolled out his attacking instinct by peeling of his marker for Kenya's penalty.

He was at his defensive best and put his body on the line one to block a venomous shot. Never the opposition a sniff at goal while partnering Mohammed at the rear guard.

Recall a match needs start, Paul was not able to make it at this time. It however remains early days as Rwanda to might extend their good start in the coming games. Amavubi’s next task is on Tuesday against Zanzibar.
