Strikers Abdallah Hassan and Masud Juma scored in one or the other half as Harambee Stars cut Togo 2-1 in Lome in a dead elastic Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier on Monday evening to bow out on a high.

The Stars had effectively been packaged out of the race for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations Finals in the wake of neglecting to beat Egypt in Nairobi last Friday; a match that finished in a 1-1 draw was playing for pride.

The Stars expected to dominate the Friday match and end up with another success against the Togolese to have a possibility of gracing the masterpiece. However, they shot themselves on the foot in Nairobi, where they dropped six significant focuses that would have propelled them to the mother lode for the second time in succession.

All home apparatuses against Togo, Egypt and Comoros, finished in draws before losing away to the islanders in Moroni, however picking another point out and about in Alexandria, Egypt, in the first round of the qualifiers, yet which they couldn't be based on.

In the first half, before Juma guaranteed focuses well-being with a second-half goal, Abdallah's opening goal was to acquire the first win in their group, maintaining their third place.

The hosts got comfort with a stoppage-time punishment, yet it was short of what was needed to rescue a point.
