The Kenya versus Sudan national team friendly match that will be staged at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi on Friday 27 May will be a preserve of players aged between 20 – 23 years, the Football Kenya Federation has confirmed.
Sudan agreed to the friendly match, and head coach Stanley Okumbi says the match will be used to check on other players who rarely get the national team chance.
The match will be preceded by another, pitting the Sudan U20 team against the Kenya U20 team on the same day and at the same venue.
After the Sudan friendly matches, Kenya will take on Tanzania on Sunday 26 May, and Okumbi states in the communique that the Tanzania game will be a fully fledged international match with all players available for selection.
“In the first match we will field a young squad aged between 20 to 23 years, who we feel have great potential but still need to develop, while the second match will be a full international friendly with all the players available for selection,” he said.
Kenya will be using the friendly matches to prepare for the 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Congo – Brazzaville on Sunday 5 June at the MISC, Kasarani..
