AFCON 2019 Qualifier: Kenya arrive in Ghana today for Saturday clash


The Harambee Stars of Kenya will arrive in Ghana today for Saturday’s final 2019 AFCON Qualifier against the Black Stars.

Despite both teams having already booked places in the tournament in Egypt in June, the match is to determine which of them will get top spot in Group F.

The Kenyans will come in with a 22-man squad that includes Tottenham Hotspur’s Victor Wanyama.

They will have the chance of training at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday per CAF regulations and play the qualifier at the same venue 24 hours later.

For Kenya coach, Sebastian Migne, there is no need to place heavy expectations on the players in terms of the match and he is only looking for good output from his men.

“We are not under pressure. Even if it were a crucial qualification match, we still would have taken it easy. This will be a chance for me to gauge the players ahead of AFCON,” he said to the Kenyan FA website.

Kenya are top of the group on 7 points while Ghana are second on 6.
