Kenya’s National team, Harambee Stars, will host South Sudan in an international friendly encounter at the Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi on Tuesday Afternoon. The match comes up at 15:00 East African Time.
Both of the teams will play no part in next year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire. As for South Sudan, they took part in the Qualfiers but failed to make it out of the group after they finished bottom with just three points from six games.
As for the Harambee Stars, its football association was suspended for “political interference” and were only included in the draw for the qualifiers on the proviso they would be cleared by FIFA to compete. However, they were not cleared and subsequently thrown out without kicking a ball.
Meanwhile, the Harambee Stars come into this friendly match with South Sudan on the back of a morale-boosting 2-1 win over Qatar on Thursday and will try to impress their fans when they play South Sudan at home on Tuesday.
It could be said that this friendly is somewhat inconsequential but with the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers coming in November, it could mean a lot to the two teams ahead of that time.
South Sudan are in Group B alongside African champions Senegal, Congo DR, Mauritania
Togo and Sudan. On the other hand, the Harambee Stars find themselves in group F with Côte d'Ivoire, Gabon, The Gambia, Burundi, and Seychelles.
