The National Women Football team, Harambee Starlets, will face Uganda in a first-round AWCON Qualifier return match slated for Sunday, April 8, 2018, at the Startimes Stadium stadium in Lugogo, Uganda starting 4 pm EAT.
The match follows Kenya’s 1-0 win in the first leg, played on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
Lilian Adera scored the all-important goal in the 53rd minute from long range, a goal the Starlets held on for a crucial first-leg advantage.
“We gave a good account of ourselves in the first leg. We have had adequate preparations for the return match and I am confident we will get a positive result,” said Starlets coach David Ouma.
The aggregate winner of the match is set to meet Equatorial Guinea in the second and final qualifying round, between June 4, and June 12, 2018.
Kenya made a maiden appearance at the 2016 showpiece in Cameroon, bowing out in the first round at the hands of Ghana, Mali, and Nigeria.
