The Kenya Women National team, Harambee Starlets, is set to face Ethiopia in an International friendly match slated for Saturday, August 17, 2019, at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
This as the team gears up for their upcoming Olympics Qualifier against Malawi, whose first leg is set to be played on August 28, 2019, with the second leg slated for September 1, 2019, at the MISC Kasarani.
Starlets kicked off residential training on Monday, August 12, 2019, in Nairobi, ahead of the match, which will serve as a build-up to the crucial qualifier. Kenya got a bye in the first round, and will have either of Gabon or Ghana in their way in the third round should they pass the Malawi test.
The qualifying tournament, which is in its fifth edition, will determine which team gains qualification to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan.
