The National U17 football team will on Friday, April 20, 2018, face Somalia in her final Group A match of the 2018 CECAFA U17 Championships in Burundi.

Coach Michael Amenga has made three changes to the team that played out a barren draw with Ethiopia in their second group A match played on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at the Gitega Stadium.

Brian Olang’o, Daniel Ochieng, and Nesta Wangema have been drafted into the starting lineup in place of Maxwell Mulili, Hillary Okoth, and Lesley Otieno.

Laiser Hill defender Arnold Onyango will bear the captain’s armband.

The match is set to kick off at 4 pm at the Muyinga Stadium.
