Champagne is still on ice as Kenya waits for coffee and communication about Afcon future


Mwendwa confirmed that Harambee Stars will stage a camp in France in advance camp this season on their way to Cameroon

Kenyan football fans will have to wait a little longer before they can finally open the champagne to the country's qualification celebrations for the 2019 Final Afcon.

Local fans are waiting with pent-up breath to know if Harambee Stars finally end their 14-year wait to appear in a continental concert set to be staged in Cameroon in 2019.

But the FIFA ban on Sierra Leone delays the celebration in Kenya .Accon's qualification in Group F has been thrown into a state of confusion; opponents of Sierra Leone – Kenya, who head the team with seven points; Ghana and Ethiopia, have no idea who will safely do And like the players, fans and directors of the three countries, they are still wondering what the next step will be.

Prediction The most likely outcome from the suspension was made even more difficult after Kiev allowed Equatorial Guinea to take part in the Women's Cup of Africa to the Nations, despite the fact that the country still serves a ban FIFA.

If the last drama witnessed towards the final Opecon is something to go by, then everything is possible – Sierra Leone may be back to the tests.

The stars of Harambee were supposed to play Sierra Leone on Sunday, but the coffee called the game, leaving the Kenya Football Federation guessing the next course of action that the mainland body would take.

As it stands Sierra Leone has three games at hand, having also missed a home to clash against Ghana, but Nick Mwendwa confirmed that Kenya has yet to get any communication on the way forward.

"We have been there (in Afcon) but do not open the champagne yet.We are waiting for coffee to write us officially confirming that the game will not take place (in the future).

Mwendwa, however, says that he sees no possibility of a puff allowing Sierra Leone to play their games off the calendar. "Sierra Leone have missed three games so far, and it's almost impossible to have another window to release players," noted Mwendwa.

The FKF boss says that the Harambee Stars will continue to kick forward their preparation for the continent champion in May even if the case of Sierra Leone is still pending.

Mwendwa said that Harambee Stars will stage a camp in France in advance camp this season on their way to Cameroon.
