The Kenyan under-17 girls national team is just 90 minutes away from a historic World Cup qualification. This follows their convincing 3-0 victory over Burundi in the first leg of the final qualification round of the World Cup Dream, played away at Abebe Bikila Stadium in Addis Ababa.

Kenya took the lead in the 11th minute through Lornah Faith’s stunning strike. This early goal silenced the home crowd and gave the Harambe starlets composure in the game.

In the 43rd minute, Kenya doubled their lead through Marion Serenge, giving Kenya an important 2–0 cushion at the break.  In the second half, Kenya sealed the game in the 71st minute, with Susan Okoth recording her name in the score sheet. This goal completely took the game beyond Burundi’s reach, placing Kenya a step closer to qualifying for the World Cup.

The Kenyan team not only secured a comfortable lead heading into the second leg at home but also showcased their class on the football pitch. Before this, they had defeated Ethiopia 3-0 on aggregate, showing their command in the competition.

If they continue with this form, they will head to the Dominican Republic this October for the first-ever World Cup to feature a Kenyan team.

This win will mark a significant milestone for the Kenyan Football Federation in the development of women’s football in the country.
