Federation President Sam Nyamweya insists they are fine with the reason given by the Black Stars, who opted to cancel a friendly match against Harambee Stars

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Sam Nyamweya insists they were not snubbed by Ghana who have opted to play Uganda after initially indicating they will play Harambee Stars on June 1.

Nyamweya says they are fine with the reasons given by Ghana for canceling the match.

"Looking back we now realize that the match would have been a liability rather than an asset considering the possibility of us getting injuries," he told

He added:"We are preparing to face Nigeria and not Ghana and so our focus is on the June 5 World Cup qualifier at home."

Ghana cancelled the friendly against Kenya on Tuesday by pointing out that it was impossible for them to have all their foreign based players for the build up.

However, on Friday a Ugandan daily reported that Ghana have asked to play Uganda Cranes raising doubts over the reasons given to cancel the friendly against Kenya.
