The Kenyan Senior Men’s team, Harambee Stars, held a light training session today afternoon, hours after they arrived in Malawi for a four-nation tournament.

Likewise, the U20 Rising Stars also had a light session ahead of their tournament’s opening match against Zimbabwe. The match is set to be played on Friday, March 22, 2024 at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe starting at 4 pm EAT.

The arrival in camp of AFC Leopards left-back Vincent Mahiga and Gor Mahia winger Sharif Musa has boosted the Harambee Stars camp. The duo were called up late to camp in place of Abud Omar and Eric Johanna who were released on Thursday morning. The coach is handling the matter.

In the meantime, Rising Stars coach Salim Babu could not travel with the team owing to a hitch in his travel documents. Consequently, his assistant, Anthony Akhulia, will serve as head coach for the team in the competition.

This tournament holds significance as it aims to prepare both teams for their upcoming FIFA and CAF assignments.
