Kenya's Harambee Stars will grace the 2019 Afcon finals after Confederation of African Football moved to suspend Sierra Leone from the qualifiers.
Until Friday, it was not clear whether the tinny West African side was in the race following a ban from Fifa owing to government interference. Following the new development, Kenya and Ghana have made it to the final of the competition.
Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa has confirmed to Goal that the national team will make a return to the continental bonanza for the first time since 2004.
“It is because of hard work and we still have to keep going. Now we have to do even better and the job is not to join that Afcon, it is to be consistent in doing it.”
Harambee Stars lead the Group with seven points after three matches, while Ghana are lying second on six points. Ethiopia are bottom of the Group with a single point.
Kenya and Ghana will face off to determine, who finishes top of the group.
