Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the Intercontinental Cup! Next up is: Kenya vs Chinese Taipei
...
The last group game of the Intercontinental Cup will be between Kenya and Chinese Taipei.

Kenya started the competition on a positive note, as they defeated New Zealand 2-1, with Miheso and Ochieng producing one goal each. The Harambee Stars then received a 3-0 thrashing from India in their second match. On the other hand, the Chinese Taipei lost both their matches, the first one was a 5-0 drubbing by India, and the second was a 0-1 loss to New Zealand. 

India is the only team safely through the final, and Kenya still have a good chance of qualifying so it is a do-or-die situation for them. Chinese Taipei are already out of contention, so chances are that the coach will field newer players to see how they fare.

After New Zealand defeated India 2-1 on June 7, things have gotten really interesting. 

Kenya need to win the upcoming battle by at least 3 goals. In case they win 3-0, then both head-to-head and goal difference will be negated for India, New Zealand, and Kenya. A win by a three-goal margin would put Kenya on the same goal difference as New Zealand, however Kenya would qualify to the final as they would have scored more goals at the end of the group stage. It will be interesting to see how things pan out in this match.
