Football Kenya Federation has drafted the National U17 team into the Union of North African Football Federations U18 football tournament set to be held in Egypt between April 4, and April 11, 2019.

Kenya will come up against Morocco, Algeria and hosts Egypt, with the tournament set to be played in a round robin format.

The tourney will act as a precursor to the team’s upcoming international assignments. The Junior Stars bowed out of the group stage in the Africa U17 Cup of Nations CECAFA region qualifier played in Tanzania late last year. They had earlier finished fourth in the CECAFA U17 Championships played in Burundi in April 2018.
