FKF has waived gate charges for the match in a bid to rally support towards the Starlets’ U20 first ever World Cup bid
As they host Cameroon in the penultimate round of the U20 Women's World Cup on Friday, November 17 at Nyayo, Rising Starlets have their work cut out.
The side has a 3-goal deficit they seek to overturn in the second leg of action, but coach Beldine Odemba, who guided the senior team past the Central African country in the WAFCON qualifiers, believes his side has what it takes to achieve the desired results and advance.
A win for the Kenyan youngsters will see them play the winner of the Congo versus Egypt match which is the final qualification round for the global extravaganza slated for Colombia in 2024.
“ Training has been good and we are ready for action. I don’t feel as if there is any pressure on our side. There is always pressure for results but the main thing for us is that we are working hard to overturn the first leg results," coach Odemba said during the team's final training session on Thursday.
As for the changes and adjustments expected, the tactician hinted at just a few positional changes with the main squad remaining unaltered.
“After our away game we did our own video analysis, went through the first game and focused on where we were weak,” she said. “That plus enhancing our strong areas was necessary, and even though we haven’t had any friendlies in between, we should be ready tomorrow.”
The match is scheduled for 3 pm (EAT) with gates open for all.
