Football Kenya Federation will from Monday, February 19, 2018, hold trials for the Kenya National U20 team (Rising Stars) that is set to take part in a four Nation tournament in Egypt between March 18th and 28th, 2018.

A total of 99 players scouted across the country will take part in the four-day trial exercise at the MISC Kasarani, that will culminate with the selection of the final team set to represent the country in Cairo.

“Youth development remains key in our long-term agenda,” said FKF CEO Robert Muthomi.

“That is why we have not only put in place an elaborate scouting network that ensures no deserving player is left out, but that we also find quality players within the required age bracket,” explained Mr. Muthomi.

The first batch of 50 players will be tested on February 19th and 20th 2018, with the second batch scheduled to have their chance on February 21st and 22nd 2018.

International players, as well as players who will be scouted from the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom Central and Nairobi editions, will also join the team in the course of next week.
