Stars will use the friendlies as part of their preparation for the Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers in September

Harambee Stars will face Gambia and Comoros in two international friendly matches scheduled for March, 2018.

Stars will take on Comoros in the first match on March 24 before playing Gambia two days later away in Morocco.

“We are happy to have secured the two friendlies as part of our build-up matches ahead of 2019 Afcon qualifier against Ghana.

“We feel that the matches will not only provide the technical bench with the much-needed opportunity to assess the players, but that it will also keep the national team active during the upcoming Fifa international week, key in preparing for future assignments,” FKF CEO Robert Muthomi told Goal.

The friendly matches are the first for the national team this year after a successful outing at Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup late last year.

Kenya won the tournament on post-match penalties against Zanzibar. This will be the first assignment since September 2017 for Coach Stanley Okumbi having replaced Paul Put on interim capacity.

Put resigned from his position last week citing personal reasons.
