Harambee Stars will be up against DR Congo in an international friendly on June 15 this is according to reports from Diski Afrika.

The news comes on a back of rumours that Gambia, who Stars were to take on the same day, said to have pulled out of their friendly.

Even though the venue for the clash has not been confirmed, the date falls at a time when the Sebastien Migne coached side will be in France for their two-week camp in preparations for the 2019 African Cup of Nations slated for Egypt.

The last time Stars met DR Congo in a friendly was back in 2017 where the Stanley Okumbi coached charges emerged 2-1 winners in a clash staged at Kenyatta Stadium-Machakos.


Stars will first take on Madagascar on June 7 in a warm-up match with the team expected to leave for France on 31st May; the team having been booked at the French Rugby Federation, Marcoussis Cedex where they will hold a 19-day residential camp.

Stars have been grouped alongside Algeria, Senegal and Tanzania. They begin the showpiece with a tie against Algeria on June 23 before meeting neighbours Tanzania four days later then winding up their group games with a tie against Senegal on July 1.

Kenya will play her Group C matches at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo.
