CAR quells rumors on Harambee Stars friendly
Kenya's Harambee Stars will play against Central African Republic in a friendly match at Marrakech, Morocco on 27th March as scheduled.
With Gambia disowning a friendly against Harambee Stars at the same venue, a tweet attributed to @fgchuma that CAR Football Federation had said they had no planned match against Kenya raised doubts as to whether the match will actually take place.
