A goalless draw at the Moi International Sports Complex in Nairobi was a mere formality as Kenya progressed to the next round of 2018 World Cup Russia qualifiers with a 5-2 aggregate win over Mauritius.

The Harambee Stars did all the work on the Island nation earlier this week with two goals in the last 10 minutes leading Bobby Williamson's troops to what proved to be a convincing win over two legs.

Kenya next face Cape Verde home and away next month with the winner progressing to the group stages.

Despite their comfortable win at the Anjalay Bellevue Stadium, Williamson named a strong starting eleven with Southampton ace Victor Wanyama captaining the side.

To their credit, Les Dodos, looked a better side - to the frustration of the hundreds who gathered hoping to see a repeat of the seven-goal thriller.

Kenya showed a lot of attacking intent as the game grew old, but they failed to provide the finishing touch as Mauritius bowed out with some dignity.
