|NAIROBI， July 5 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's captain Victor Wanyama believes he will play with his country's team Harambee Stars at the FIFA World Cup before he retires as he enjoys the start of his English premier league side， Tottenham Hotspur career.
The 25-year-old midfielder who joined the north London club officially this week told local media on Tuesday his dream of turning out for Stars at the World Cup will be the pinnacle of his decorated career that has seen him play for European top league sides.
"I have played football at different levels including the coveted UEFA Champions League， but it will be more fulfilling to play for my country in such a stage，" Wanyama said.
"It may appear difficult to qualify， but if you look how sometimes we miss it， you realize it is possible. A few mistakes that have cost us in the past can be avoided. With commitment and the right focus it will be done，" the former Southampton player stressed.
"It's every player's dream to play in the World Cup but it becomes more realistic when a quality team is developed over a time. There are many more Wanyamas， some even better out there but its only through a deliberate development program will they come through，" he added.
Kenya crashed out of the 2018 World Cup in Russia at the second preliminary round when they lost 2-1 on aggregate to Cape Verde last year with the new administration at the country's federation eyeing qualification to the 2022 edition in Qatar.
Wanyama dismissed claims that working under local head coach， Stanley Okumbi， who was appointed in February was a step down for him and the nation should bring in a foreigner of the calibre he enjoys in the English Premier League.
"Sometimes it calls for shift in mindset， when it comes to conditions in camp here. The fact is the levels are totally different but I always appreciate that my colleagues from the local league are also doing their best in the same environment. At the end of the day it's not about me， it's about Stars，" the former Glasgow Celtic title winning star added.
He underlined his mission in his first season at the north London club Tottenham whom he joined from the Saints this summer.
"Spurs is a big club， everything calls for exceptional hard work. My target is to confirm a first team place on merit. Other things will come. It will be a nice feeling to feature in the Champions League again in a different environment."
Wanyama moved from Southampton to Spurs in a reported five-year deal worth 11 million pounds.
NEW DELHI， Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Two teenagers were crushed to death in Indian capital New Delhi by a speeding train while they were busy posing for selfies at a railway track， officials said Tuesday.
The duo was killed on Saturday at the Anand Vihar railway station in East Delhi. Relatives of the victims told police they along with five others had reportedly rented a camera to take pictures for a modelling portfolio.
"Preliminary investigations revealed the teenagers were clicking selfies in front of an approaching train and while doing so they ignored another train coming on the adjacent track，" a railway police official quoted eyewitnesses as saying.
"In the confusion the boys tried to jump aside to avoid the speeding train but were crushed on the track，" the official said.
The other five accompanying the duo had a narrow escape， as they stood at a distance from their friends. The teenagers were classmates at a private-run school in Delhi.
Police officials said they have seized the camera and ordered an investigation into the deaths. Selfie deaths are not uncommon in India.
Last year seven youth were drowned in river Ganga at Kanpur district， in northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh， after a selfie session went awry.
Piqued by increasing number of deaths in India in the process of taking selfies at accident prone locations in tourist destinations， India's federal government issued directions to its states asking them to take steps to ensure that tourist attractions are selfie-safe.
