Kenya: Harambee Star in Front of Afcon in Europe


Harambee Stars, a three-week camp in Europe, 15 June to 13 July, will be held between the African Nations Cup before going to Afghanistan, will be able to organize next week to qualify for the show on the continent.

The men's national football team is on the brink of breaking a 15-year-old jinx in the tournament after collecting seven points in four qualification games.

Kenya is ranked third with three points in the four-point Ghana, while Ethiopia ranks the third with seven points and the "F" group with seven points. Secondly, this Sunday will face the fifth in the qualifying rounds of this market in Addis Ababa.

The stars were scheduled to play Sierra Leone this Sunday, but the fixture was canceled by the African Football Confederation (Caf) because of the suspension of the West African country from all football events that followed the government's intervention by the American football governing body, Fifa.

If Sierra Leone, who is currently defeating three games, will be thrown out of café's qualifying, Kenya will make a direct slot to Cameroon before the group match, which Ghana will play until March next year.

"We've got our fingers to tackle Sierra Leone, but we still have a good staff to cut qualification," Reşid Echesa, the sports cabinet secretary. Said.

"To qualify as a ministry, we are planning to set up a camp for our team for at least three weeks, so we have enough time for preparation. We do not want to go," he added. Cameroon will participate but compete. "

The stars already guaranteed the Sh50 million from the government and handed the tickets to the 24 team competition.

The money will be shared between the players and the technical bench according to Echesa.

Jacob "Ghost" Mulee, former Harambee Star coach who brought Kenya to the last Afcon appearance 14 years ago, described the move as a morale boost for the squad.

. A camp in Europe improves team harmony, but also gives enough time to focus on evaluating coach players, yeterli Mulee said, settling in England before playing Cape Verde in the 2004 Afcon qualifier.

"Remember that we defeated Bolton at 3-2 and lost a team in Northern Ireland, but we won the motivation to win home owners (Cape Verde) at home."

Football Kenyan Federation (FKF) Communications Director Barry Otieno said the move would make the team's performances better.
