Harambee Stars to begin Cecafa challenge against Djibouti

Kenya national soccer team Harambee Stars will begin their title defence in the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup against Djibouti on December 8.

The regional tournament which will be making a comeback after missing out last season, will kick-off on December 7 with two matches lined up; Burundi against Eritrea and the hosts Uganda taking on Ethiopia. 

Kenya who are pooled in Group C alongside Tanzania, Djibouti, and Zanzibar, will next take on Tanzania on December 10 before winding up their group matches against Zanzibar on December 12.

Harambee Stars, under Coach Francis Kimanzi, will be seeking to defend the title they won in 2017 in Machakos after beating Zanzibar on post-match penalties.

On Monday, Kimanzi was forced to make changes to the provisional squad after keeper Brian Bwire pulled out owing to injury.

Western Stima keeper Samuel Odhiambo has been drafted to take up Bwire’s place.
