The Kenya National Women team, Harambee Starlets, has intensified training ahead of their scheduled Olympics Qualifier against Malawi, in Lilongwe.

The team, which has been in camp for two weeks now, managed a morale-boosting 3-2 friendly win over Ethiopia last weekend and it is now all set for the first leg set to be played on Wednesday, August 28, 2019.

“We were quite vulnerable in defense in our friendly match against Ethiopia and this is what we have been working on in training. I am confident we will be stronger at the back and that way, we can have possibilities of even getting a winner,” said coach David Ouma.

Starlets are scheduled to jet out to Malawi on Sunday, August 25, 2019, ahead of Wednesday’s first leg match, with the second leg slated for September 1, 2019, at the MISC Kasarani.

Kenya got a bye from the first round. The winner of the tie on aggregate will thus face either of Ghana or Gabon in the third round.
