Harambee Stars head coach Francis Kimanzi is confident Kenya will do well in the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier against Egypt and Togo.
Stars started their preparations ahead of the qualifiers, holding a training session on Tuesday. Francis Kimanzi's men are in non-residential training in Nairobi where they had the second training session on Wednesday with the head coach confident his team will do well against Egypt and Togo.
"I first want to thank our clubs for releasing players to join us in training despite the international window not having been opened yet," he said.
"We have started off with the local-based players so as to build momentum in time for our matches against Egypt and Togo."
"At this level, every team we face is a good side, so we have to be equally well prepared and I am confident that we will start off on the right footing,” he added.
Eleven players took part in Wednesday’s session, among them goalkeeper Timothy Odhiambo (Ulinzi Stars), defenders Hillary Wandera (Tusker), Johnstone Omurwa (Wazito), Samuel Olwande (Kariobangi Sharks) and Daniel Sakari (Kariobangi Sharks) and AFC Leopards duo of Whyvonne Isuza and John Mark Makwatta.
Defenders Eric Ouma and Joseph Okumu, who ply their trade in Sweden, also took part in Wednesday’s session.
Kenya will take on Egypt on November 14th in Alexandria before hosting Togo on November 18th at MISC Kasarani at 7 PM under floodlights.
The team is scheduled to depart for Cairo on Sunday, November 10, 2019.
