Kenya: Harambee stars on land pitch in Europe before Afcon



Harambee Stars can forge a camp of three weeks in Europe before heading to Cameroon for the African Nations Cup (Afcon) designated for June 15 to July 13 next year they should be eligible to view the continent.

The national men's football team is on the brink of breaking the 15-year-old yanks of featuring a tournament after gaining seven points in four qualification games.

Kenya tops the team "F" with seven points, three before the second placed in Ethiopia in four times and champions Ghana are third on three points. The latter two face five rounds on Sunday in Addis Ababa.

The stars were to play Sierra Leone on Sunday, but the facility was canceled by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) because of the suspension of the West African nation from FIFA's football activities following government intervention.

Sierra Leone, which has now lost three games to be expunged from confirming by coffee, Kenya will seal a direct slot to Cameroon before their last team game to march to Ghana next year.

"We hold our fingers on the Sierra Leone situation, but despite this, we have a good grade that will seal the qualification immediately," said Government Sports Secretary Rashid Echesa.

He added: "If we fit, as an office, we have plans to organize a camp in Europe for the team at least for three weeks, so that they have enough time to prepare, we do not want to go to Cameroon to participate but to compete."

The stars have already secured $ 500 million from the government immediately and are ticketing their 24-team competition.

The money will be distributed between the players and the technical bench by Echesa.

"Muffy" Molly, who led Kenya to the sight of her last impact 14 years ago, welcomed the move and called it a moral motive for the class.

"A camp in Europe improves team cohesion, it also gives the coach enough time to concentrate on evaluating his players," said Molly, whose side was camping in the UK before playing Cape Verde in 2004.

"I remember that we beat Bolton 3-2 and we lost to a team in Northern Ireland, but we were motivated to beat the hosts (Cape Verde) at home."

The Kenya Football Federation (FKF) communication manager Barry Otieno said the move would be better than the team's performance.
