My version of the story is totally different. Kenya is not weak in football. The current whole squad of harambee stars is a fraud and is not comprised of the best players. Kuingia harambee stars ni connections plus basic talent. Corruption mingi sana. Real talent rots in the counties. I would like to know which criteria they use to select that squad. Hamwezi tegemea Olunga peke yake. One or two stars wont hack it. This isn't basketball. You need at least seven good players at minimum. Kenya has like 3 and the rest are average Johnmen who talked their way into the squad.

Even unattached players get picked, remember jamal mohamed and massoud juma

@Azor Ahai your conclusion is the only sensible one. The choice of players and their criteria for the national team seems to be a flaw for sure . They have completelymneglected grooming a team from scratch or have very incompetent scouts .
Ukiingia mtaa, there are so many talented players , they could handle trials and find a working squad, as long as finances and allowances are made available. This charity approach and stealing won't help the cause .
They have to invest in the team, talents, finance and training equipment .
Otherwise we just dismantle that football organisation and people play the sport for recreation .
