Football Kenya Federation has played down reports that they have organized a friendly with champions Gor Mahia on November 14.

"The federation has not held talks with any local club, Gor Mahia included, with a view of playing a friendly match, in light of the recently cancelled international Match against Zambia.

"We, however, continue to look elsewhere and will inform the public if and when we confirm any friendly."
