The Kenya National U17 team played out a 0-0 draw with their Ugandan counterparts in a test match played on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, at the Utalii Grounds.

This as the team gets in shape for the upcoming Union of North African Football Federations (UNAF) U18 Tournament, set to be played in Egypt between April 6, and April 10, 2019.

The Kenya U17 team coach noted that the match was important for him to gauge his squad ahead of their departure to Egypt.

“This was one of the toughest matches we have played, which is we good, as we are in for a tougher challenge in Egypt. I now have a clear picture of my final squad and I am confident that those who will make it to the team will give a good account of themselves,” said Coach Michael Amenga.

The team jets out to Alexandria, Egypt, on April 4, 2019, for the four nations tournament. Kenya will be up against hosts Egypt, Morocco, and Algeria. Uganda, meanwhile, will be taking part in the Africa U17 Cup of Nations in Tanzania.
