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.

Kenya and Ghana will face off to determine, who finishes top of the group.
