Zambia gave Kenya real test but ‘we passed despite our fitness level’

Harambee Stars coach Francis Kimanzi has admitted he was worried about the fitness levels of his charges heading into the friendly against Zambia, which they won 2-1.

Cliff Nyakeya’s strike and an own goal by Tandi Mwape handed Francis Kimanzi’s side the victory while a late goal by Emmanuel Chabula denied the East Africans a home clean sheet at the newly refurbished Nyayo Stadium.

“It’s a great game for us,” Kimanzi is quoted by Standard Sports. “I’m more than delighted for the result because I didn’t get enough time to prepare the players and I was even forced to use players with low fitness levels.

“I knew we would struggle in the last twenty minutes or so and that actually happened with a few players looking exhausted; this because of the situation we have gone through.

“But the important thing is that we’ve gotten the win against a very

Trump didn’t fear catching COVID-19 despite recognizing threat level

CLOSE

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president “remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day.”

USA TODAY

Despite recognizing the threat of the coronavirus, President Donald Trump told journalist Bob Woodward he had no fear of contracting COVID-19 himself.

“Well, you’re risking getting it, of course, the way you move around and have those briefings and deal with people. Are you worried about that?” Woodward asks on tapes of his conversations with Trump that released for his new book “Rage.”

“No, I’m not. I don’t know why I’m not. I’m not,” Trump replied. The recording can be heard on CNN’s website.

Trump is being treated at Walter Reed Military Medical Center after he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19. Leading up to the test, Trump had campaigned vigorously before crowds that weren’t wearing masks.

You glance across the park and see a large playground structure. Think about how this makes you feel.

As you continue walking, you arrive at a
