The team has been in camp in Nairobi and all is now set for the junior regional showpiece, set to be played between September 21 and October 5, 2019.

“We are in a tough group but I think the tougher the group the better the challenge,” said coach Okumbi.

“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,” added the coach.

Kenya has been pooled in Group B alongside Ethiopia, Zanzibar, Tanzania. Uganda, Sudan, Eritrea, and Djibouti make up Group A while Burundi, South Sudan, and Somalia constitute Group C.

The top three teams from Group A and B will join the top two from Group C in the quarterfinals.
