Kenya expects tough pool matches in Djibouti

As the Kenya U-2O handball women’s team prepares to head to Djibouti in the coming week, the technical bench headed by coach Farid Mohammed has acknowledged the fact that they will face stiff competition in their group stages.

Kenya has been pooled alongside hosts Djibouti, Mozambique and Senegal and the coach is wary of the teams, “ Djibouti are the host nation and they will come out strongly since they are at home, Senegal are very technical in their game approach so we know we going to have a tough match against them.”

On Mozambique, Jack Ochieng the Nairobi Water coach who is assisting Mohammed in unofficial capacity hinted that they will face the girls seeking to revenge their loss to the Kenya senior team when they played in the All African Games in Maputo in 2011, “in Maputo they had the privilege of selecting the team that they wanted to play with since they were the host nation and they selected Kenya thinking that we were weak, we went ahead and beat them and I know their junior team will be seeking to avenge the loss for their senior side.”

The Kenyan team is currently training at the Nyayo handball Court.
