Football Kenya Federation have confirmed this through their official communique obtained by Goal on Wednesday with a list of 26 players called up for camping as from Thursday in readiness for the matches.
CEO Robert Muthomi says that the friendlies are part of the federation’s grand master-plan whose aim is not only to foster football development at the junior level but also build a future senior national team.
“We have formulated a policy that will ensure all our junior national teams play two matches in all international friendlies that they partake.
