By Ali Mivule

Uganda Cranes are set to face Harambee Stars of Kenya in an international friendly.

FUFA spokesperson Ahmed Hussein says the match will be played on 22nd March 2017 at either Moi International Sports Complex in Kasarani or Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi depending on the availability of either grounds.

Last year’s friendly between the two teams ended in a goalless draw at Namboole stadium.

The game will help the two teams prepare for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

This will be Uganda’s first competitive match since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Uganda is pooled in group L alongside Cape Verde, Tanzania and Lesotho with the first game to be played against Tanzania.
