Kenya U-17 boys’ team were subjected to age test ahead of the upcoming 2019 Africa U-17 Cup of Nations Qualifiers.

The players were taken through a series of medical tests to ascertain their rightful ages as required by Confederation of African Football.

“Caf requires us to take the players through the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) tests to ensure that the players who take part in the tournament are not only physically fit but also within the required age bracket,” FKF CEO Robert Muthomi noted.

The team will kick-off residential training in Nairobi on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, ahead of the tourney set to be played between August 11-26, in Tanzania.
