Kenya’s U-20 Women’s National Team is in camp at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos, ahead of their double header friendly match against Jordan.

The fixture is scheduled for August 29 and 31 in Jordan, as this further boosts the team in their preparation for the France 2018 U-20 Women World Cup qualifiers.

Kenya defeated Botswana 7-1 in their preliminary round fixture and qualified without kicking a ball in the return leg following Botswana’s withdrawal.

Kenya will now meet neighbors Ethiopia, in the first round of the qualifiers set for September 15, 2017.
