English Premier League star Yves Bissouma who plays for Brighton FC was arrested on Thursday at the Arch bar in Brighton, England on allegations of sexual harassment.

His arrest comes hours before the Thursday night’s world cup group E qualifier against Harambee stars in Morocco.

The arrest of the highly rated Malian midfielder could strike a ray of hope among Kenyans as Stars look forward to boss their way in the midfield.

Both teams have played two games in Group E of CAF World Cup qualifiers and scored only one goal so far.

These teams will likely give a cautious but defensive approach in this game. With that, a low scoreline between teams that have struggled to score goals in this competition is a plausible outcome.

Mali and Kenya have struggled to find the net since the World Cup qualifier competition kicked off and Mali will look to defend their place at the top while Kenya can only have hopes of qualifying if they win this game or get at least a draw.

In the latest global FIFA rankings, Kenya is at position 102 while Mali are at 61.

Kenya will tackle Mali tomorrow at 10pm, with the return leg awaiting them three days later in Nairobi.

In another group E match tomorrow, Rwanda’s Amavubi stars will host Uganda from 7pm.

Mali are currently leading the group with four points with Kenya and Uganda following in the second and third place both with two points as Rwanda sit last with a point.
