Kenya took a major step towards the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations as they beat Ethiopia 3-0 at the Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi on Sunday.

Japan-based striker Michael Olunga broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute with a wonderful volley from the right-flank after he was set up by Erick Omondi, who then got his name on the scoresheet five minutes later with a rocket of a goal from the edge of the box.

Victor Wanyama made it 3-0 in the 67th minute from the spot after Omondi was fouled inside the penalty area, although the Tottenham Hotspur man later hobbled off with what look like an hamstring problem.

The win stretches Kenya's lead at the top of Group F to seven points. Ethiopia is second with four points while Ghana and Serra Leone are third and fourth respectively with three points each.

Sierra Leone are currently suspended by FIFA and, if the world football governing body doesn’t reverse the suspension, Kenya would definitely take their place in next summer's showpiece, leaving Ethiopia and Ghana to battle it out for the other slot. (KweseESPN)
