Kenya face a must win game against Uganda on Sunday in what will determine which teams proceeds to the Africa Nations Championship in Sudan next year.

With a 1-0 deficit from the first leg in Kampala last month, Kenya must score more than two goals to be certain of making their first show at the tournament, after they missed the inaugural event in Cote d'Ivoire in 2009.

The winner between Kenya and Uganda together with other five matches to be played this weekend will join hosts Sudan, holders DR Congo, Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Algeria, Cameroon, Gabon and Niger for the finals to be held from February 4 - 25 next year.

Harambee Stars coach Twahir Muhiddin has been exuding confidence in the build up and that will be put to test on Sunday when the two sides clash in Nairobi.

"Players know what is at stake. We are at full strength and are ready to perform," Muhiddin said.
