Newly appointed coach Sébastien Migné has today, Tuesday, May 22, 2018, taken charge of Harambee Stars’ first training session, ahead of two friendly matches against Swaziland and Equatorial Guinea.
All local based players initially called up took part in the session, save for George Odhiambo, who is out with an illness. Foreign-based players are expected to link up with the team in the course of the week.
“I want to thank our local clubs for releasing their players. We have had our first session today with all the local players, which is a good build-up ahead of our first match on Friday” said Stars coach Sébastien Migné.
Gor Mahia’s influential midfielder Francis Kahata, who is making a return to the national team, expressed satisfaction with the team’s first training session and further urged fans to turn out in large numbers for Friday’s match against Swaziland.
“I’m happy with the new coach. Morale in camp is also high. I urge all fans to come out and support us, and I’m hopeful we will get a positive result,” said Kahata.
Kenya will face Swaziland and Equatorial Guinea on Friday, May 25, and Monday, May 28, 2018, respectively.
Both matches will be played at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos, with tickets set to retail at Ksh 100 (Terrace) and Ksh 200 (VIP).
