Harambee Starlets warmed up for the forthcoming qualifier with a 3-0 win against host Zambia in a friendly staged on Sunday.
The Robert Kanyi coached charges silenced the relatively big number of local fans, who turned up at the Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe with an early goal before adding two quick ones late in the second half.
Zambia beat Kenya on a post match penalties during 2017 Cosafa Cup staged in Zimbabwe, but Starlets shown brightest this time around at Shepolopolo’s’ backyard.
Corazone Aquino came off the bench to score two goals within a span of five minutes and add onto Mwanahalima Adam’s 18th minute opener.
