Musa Mohammed seeking second title with Harambee Stars in six months – VIDEO

Harambee Stars stand-in captain Musa Mohammed says he’s aiming to lead the Kenyan national team to a second title in six months.

The 26-year-old defender will lead out Kenya against India in the final of the Hero International Cup at Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday.

The match comes six months after Mohammed led the same team to triumph at the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Machakos.

Mohammed has also captained Gor Mahia to two Kenyan Premier League titles and the domestic cup.


“Winning is the most important aspect of a professional footballer’s career,” said the former Gor Mahia defender, who is said to be closing in on a move to a top Tanzanian club.

“When we are here, of course we are preparing to face Ghana in September, but then there is a trophy to be won and we are going for it. We want to do it and it is possible that the achievement can be realized.”

But to achieve this Stars will have to find a reverse outcome against India who earlier in the week whipped them 3-0.

Kenya made it to the final of the tournament after beating New Zealand and Chinese Taipei 2-1 and 4-0 respectively.

In Friday’s match, Joackins Atudo scored twice with Dennis Odhiambo and Timothy Otieno grabbing a goal each to seal victory over Chinese Taipei.
