The race for the 2022 Amputee World cup in Turkey is getting trickier, as only top four teams participating in the continental event in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania will progress.

Team Kenya are keen to make their third appearance in the global showpiece but must now finish fifth after a sluggish start to the competition.

Kenya lost 4-0 to Ghana in the quarters on Wednesday, but dusted themselves and revived their hopes, coming from behind and securing a 5-4 win against Egypt on Thursday.

Kenya take on Morocco on Saturday, to battle it out for the fifth-place after the North Africans beat Cameroon yesterday evening.

World champions Angola are expected to continue their dominant form as they face Egypt in the quarter-finals and a win will guarantee Kenya safe passage.

Angola as well as Liberia, Ghana and hosts Tanzania have already sealed their qualifications.

Kenya has twice participated at the global stage, in 2014 and 2018 in Mexico and will be looking to secure a spot for themselves.
