Harambee Starlets coach Richard Kanyi has named a provisional squad of 31 players ahead of a 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) qualifier against Uganda.

The team is scheduled to report at FKF House, Goal Project, on March 5, 2018, before proceeding to camp, in Machakos, on the same day, ahead of the two-legged Qualifier, slated for between April 2, and April 10, 2018.

Should Starlets ease past Uganda, they will face Equatorial Guinea in a two-legged knockout tie that will determine who graces the continental showpiece.
