Revolving doors at Starlets camp as Malawi tie approaches

Four players have been dropped from the Kenya women national team, Harambee Starlets, currently in camp preparing for the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games qualifier against Malawi with three other players being called up.

Esther Nandika (Gaspo Youth) Susan Muhonja (Trans Nzoia Falcons), Cynthia Matekwa (Nyuki Starlets) and Lydia Karani (Makolanders) have been dropped after the first week of camp.

In their places come Ruth Ingotsi (Eldoret Falcons), Sharon Kasambi (Kayole Starlets) and Elizabeth Wambui (Gaspo Youth).

One month

The team has a month to prepare for the tie against Malawi but before then FKF president Nick Mwendwa has promised that the federation will organize at least one friendly for the team between now and then to help prepare.
