The Kenya National football team, Harambee Stars, has earned a nomination to Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) Men’s national team of the year.

Kenya has been nominated alongside Guinea Bissau, Madagascar, Mauritania, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

The nomination comes following Kenya’s outstanding performances in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers where the Stars picked up seven points from three matches. The team is thus in prime position for a place in next year’s continental showpiece.

Further, Stars came second at the Hero Intercontinental Cup in India, a four-nation tournament that also had Chinese Taipei and New Zealand taking part.

The final awards gala will be held on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, in Dakar, Senegal.
