“They (Kenya) have a good team. Of course, we respect them but we can’t fear,” added the Cranes coach.

Budding defender Mustafa Kizza, meanwhile, noted that the team is under no pressure despite playing away from home, and they are out to pick positive lessons from Sunday’s match.

“We are not under pressure playing away from home. This is only a friendly match and we have played a lot of matches away. We are just focused on giving a good account of ourselves,” said Kizza.


The match has been scheduled for Sunday, September 8, 2019, at the MISC Kasarani, starting at 4 pm.

Tickets are set to retail at KES 200 all-round access and will be sold opposite Safari Park Hotel, at Ngomongo Police Station and outside Kasarani stadium’s Gate 12. Gates will open at 11 am while ticket sales will kick off at 7 am on match day.
