The friendly comes over a month after the team easily brushed aside Botswana 7-1 in first leg of the 2018 W/Cup qualifier

Harambee Starlets U-20 team will confront Jordan in a two-legged friendly on August 29 and August 31 in Amman.

The team is currently in residential camp at Machakos, with a provisional squad of 33 players called up. The squad will be trimmed to 20 before the team departs for Jordan on August 27, 2017.

The friendly match comes just over a month after the team easily brushed aside Botswana 7-1 in the first leg of the 2018 U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifier. The latter has since pulled out of the second leg citing financial constraints.

Kenya will now face Ethiopia in the first round on September 15, 2017.

Provisional Squad; Goalkeepers: Lillian Awuor (Nyakach Girls), Judith Osimbo (Nyakach G.), Dina Tembesi (Wiyeta Girls), Ivy Makokha (Ibinzo Girls).
