The Kenya U20 Girls team is set to take on their Jordan counterparts in a two-legged friendly match scheduled for August 29 and August 31, 2017, in Jordan

The team is currently in camp in Machakos, with a provisional squad of 33 players called up. The squad will be trimmed to 20 before the team’s departure on August 27, 2017

The friendly match comes just over a month after the team easily brushed aside Botswana 7-1 in the first leg of the preliminary round of the 2018 U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifier. The latter has since pulled out of the second leg citing financial constraints. Kenya will now face Ethiopia in the first round on September 15, 2017
