Kenya’s men national soccer team, Harambee Stars, left Nairobi for Accra early today ahead of their final African Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier match against Ghana’s Black Stars – the hosts.
The team already qualified for the Afcon finals in Egypt. However, it will be looking to finish on a high in Ghana.
Stars head coach Sébastien Migné expressed his confidence saying that they will play witout pressure.
“We are not under pressure. Even if it were a crucial qualification match, we still would have taken it easy. This will be a chance for me to gauge the players ahead of AFCON,” said coach Migné.
The match is slated for Saturday, March 23, 2019. A three-week camp in France has also been lined up in May ahead of the continents premier competition.
The Afcon finals will be staged in Egypt from June, 2019.
