Kenya’s captain, Michael Olunga, showcased his prowess by scoring twice as Kenya silenced Malawi with a resounding 4-0 victory in Lilongwe, setting up a showdown with Zimbabwe in the final of the Four Nations tournament.

Olunga’s remarkable form continued as he notched four goals in his last two appearances for the national team, propelling Kenya to a convincing 4-0 triumph over hosts Malawi in the Four Nations Tournament held in Lilongwe on Saturday evening.

In a whirlwind start to the match, Harambee Stars swiftly seized the initiative, with Daniel Ayembe providing an assist for Olunga to open the scoring within the first minute.

Just three minutes later, Olunga extended Kenya’s lead with a penalty, leaving Malawi goalkeeper Brighton Munthali helpless as the ball found the back of the net.

Malawi’s coach, Patrick Mabedi, was prompted to make tactical adjustments early on, introducing Lanjesi Nkhoma in an attempt to stabilize his team’s performance.

Despite Malawi’s resurgence, Kenya remained resolute, with goalkeeper Patrick Matasi making crucial saves to maintain his team’s advantage.

As the first half progressed, Kenya faced mounting pressure from Malawi, struggling to maintain possession and conceding ground to their opponents.

Coach Engin Firat made strategic changes at halftime, introducing Kenneth Muguna to bolster Kenya’s midfield and restore control.

Although Malawi threatened with a contentious penalty call, Matasi’s heroics preserved Kenya’s lead, denying Lloyd Aaron from the spot.

In the final minutes of the match, Kenya secured their victory with two additional goals, courtesy of Ayub Timbe and substitute John Avire, sealing their place in the tournament final against Zimbabwe.

The win marks Kenya’s third victory in nine encounters against Malawi and sets the stage for an eagerly anticipated final clash with Zimbabwe, scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, with the coveted Four Nations tournament trophy at stake.
