CHAN team reports back for duty



The Kenya national team, following a three-day break, have returned to camp ahead of their African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifying clash with Burundi in Bujumbura.

Harambee Stars, under the guidance of head coach Henri Michel, will be pitching camp at the Moi International Sports Centre (MISC) Kasarani, according to Football Kenya Federation (FKF) deputy secretary general Michael Esakwa.

Esakwa also revealed that the team will lay out a plan to hold training sessions at the Nairobi City Stadium so that the players can get used to playing on an artificial surface, as the venue for their upcoming match, the Port Louis Stadium, sports a synthetic pitch.

“The team is back in camp after the short break and it will be camping at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani for the match on Sunday. As a federation we want the team to prepare well for the game and we are not expecting any hitch. We also advised the coach that he should consider taking some sessions to the City Stadium so the players get used to the artificial turf,” said Esakwa.

“The team’s travel plans are also almost complete. They may travel on Thursday night to be able to adapt to the weather conditions there.”

The final team that will travel to Burundi for the game could be named on Wednesday. The game is scheduled to kick off at 1530H
