U-17 team to depart for Nigeria on Wednesday

The Kenya U-17 football women national team is expected to depart Nairobi on Wednesday for Nigeria ahead of the world cup qualifier return match scheduled for the weekend of 3rd February. The Kenyan side lost to Nigeria 2-0 during the 1st leg played in Nairobi a week ago.

In preparation for return match, the Kenyan team has been in rigorous training in Matuu but recently shifted camp to Nairobi for the final lap of preparation before departing on Wednesday.
The team that is coached by Fred Serenge played against the Mathare youth sports Association (MYSA) in a friendly match at the City Stadium winning 2-1.

“We have strengthened our team and the players’ confidence has gone up by a good percentage. They are well prepared both technically, tactically and mentally ready for the challenge. Having seen our opponents here in Nairobi, it is not a tall order to beat them at home in Nigeria.” Said coach Serenge.

In order to proceed to the next round of the qualifier, Kenya must win the return leg by not less than three goals. The U17 world Cup will be held in Uzbehkistan later this year.

The Kenyan team that played in the 1st leg included:
Awinja Metina, Osice Catherine, Bundi Janet, Odhaimbo Maureen, Awor Charlton, Mohammed Sambi, Galgalo Marco, Mugechi Winnie,Wafula Joy, Njeri Naomi,Kurgat Faith Cheptoo. Susan Auma, Margaret Nyambura, Elizabeth Wambui, Veronicah Masinde, Lily Awour, Mercyline Anyango.
