The African nation is ranked 113 in the FIFA rankings.
Ahead of the Intercontinental Cup, Kenya head coach Sebastian Migne held a practice session with the National side on Tuesday.
Kenya was announced as a replacement of South Africa in the Intercontinental Cup a few days ago, which will be beginning from June 1. For Migne, who was appointed as the coach of the Kenyan National Team on 3rd May this year, it was his first session with the Harambee Stars.
The practice session saw 25 players joining up under the new coach. “This is the first of many training sessions we shall have, with an aim of assessing the players to identify potential national team call-ups,” said Migne.
The Kenya side will be playing against Swaziland and Equatorial Guinea on May 25 and May 28 respectively in preparation of the Intercontinental Cup next month.
Take a look at the squad at the training session yesterday below.
John Oyemba (Kariobangi Sharks), Timothy Odhiambo (Ulinzi Stars), Patrick Matasi (Posta Rangers).
Yusuf Mainge (AFC Leopards), Bolton Omwenga (Kariobangi Sharks), David Owino (Mathare United), Dennis Shikhayi (AFC Leopards), Michael Kibwage (AFC Leopards), Jockins Atudo (Posta Rangers), Johnstone Omurwa (Mathare United), Geoffrey Shiveka (Kariobangi Sharks), Moses Mudavadi (St Anthony Kitale), Robinson Kamura (AFC Leopards), Musa Mohamed (Unattached), Eric Ouma (KF Tirana, Albania).
Chrispin Oduor (Mathare United), Vincent Wasambo (Kariobangi Sharks), Cliff Nyakeya (Mathare United), Robert Arot (Nakuru All-Stars), Patillah Omotto (Kariobangi Sharks), Duncan Otieno (AFC Leopards), Marvin Omondi (AFC Leopards), Whyvonne Isuza (AFC Leopards), Jafari Odenyi (AFC Leopards).
Elvis Rupia (Nzoia Sugar), Pistone Mutamba (Wazito FC), Ovella Ochieng (Kariobangi Sharks).
Interestingly, Kenya have called up players only from the country to the training camp. The likes of Victor Wanyama has not been called up to the camp. However, that might change in the near future as the coach had admitted on 'assessing' players to find out potential national team call-ups. The French coach has also revealed that it was the first of many training camps, hinting at other possible camps before the Intercontinental Cup in June.
