    Harambee Stars suffered a 1-0 defeat to Thailand in the second friendly match staged at the SCG Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, on October 8, 2017

    Harambee Stars started on a high, controlling proceedings for the better part of the first half. On resumption, however, Thailand got into the lead through Teerasil Dangda in the 63rd minute. The Muangthong United forward tucked in the ball from close range after Stars goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch failed to handle a shot from 20 yards out

    Thailand effectively contained late pressure from Kenya for an equalizer to see out the 1-0 win. Kenya meanwhile, would give in to a second loss in four days after going down 2-1 to Iraq on Thursday, October 5, 2017, in Basra

    Stars will leave Bangkok tomorrow, Monday, October 9, 2017, at 5.15 pm EAT. The team is slated to land in Nairobi on Tuesday morning
