The Kenya Under-17 coach Michael Amenga is confident that the team will perform well against Egypt in a Union of North African Federations (UNAF) U-18 Tournament match on Saturday.

The opener will be staged at the Tolip Borg El Arab Stadium, starting 4.15 pm.

Amenga admitted that after a thorough training session, he is confident that his charges are equal to the challenge that their younger Pharaoh's counterparts will pose.

“This session was meant for us to brush through some technical aspects of the game that we will be looking to implement tomorrow (Saturday)," the tactician told Kenya's FA's portal in Egypt.

“The boys are well prepared and highly motivated. We know Egypt is one of the top nations on the continent but we are also equal to the task and we’ll give a good account of ourselves."
