Okumbi exudes confidence as Kenya U20 departs for Uganda

The Kenya U20 head coach Stanley Okumbi has expressed confidence in his side as they depart for the CECAFA U20 Championship slated for Uganda from September 21.

The team held its final training session on Tuesday 17 September at the Gems Cambridge International School and according to Okumbi, the quality of players in his side is going to give a positive result.

“We are in a tough group but I think the tougher the group the better the challenge. With the quality of players we have in the team I don’t think we have an excuse of not getting positive results. I have challenged my players that this is their chance of showcasing what they can do and I am confident we will do well,” Okumbi is quoted by FKF on their portal.
