News coming from Kenya is that the Harambee Stars are set to face the South African national team in an international friendly next month.
Following their draw against Comoros and a loss to Central African Republic in the recent FIFA international break, the East Africans are looking at engaging Bafana Bafana.
Despite the draw and a loss, Football Kenya Federation’s president Nick Mwendwa defended their decision to play the two nations, saying that the two sides are good footballing countries.
Mwendwa also confirmed that Kenya will play ‘big teams’ after he was put to task to explain why Stars prefer minnows for friendlies.
“CAR beat Egypt last year. They are not minnows. Comoros Is not a small team, but we will play big teams in May. South Africa is coming. Togo is coming and I’ve seen a letter from Cameroon. We are looking into that,” Mwendwa told KTN.
The Kenyans are preparing for their 2019 CAF African Cup of Nations qualifier against Ghana in September.
