However, as per the Court of Arbitration for Sports ruling, FKF accepted to pay the now Botswana national team head coach Ksh109, 376,374.

“We are really looking forward to this competition,” Omollo was quoted saying by Nairobi News.

“It is a dream and we stand to create some history if we qualify because it will be the first time Kenya is playing at the World Cup.”

“We have some momentum and confidence after playing at the [2019] Africa Nations Cup.

“We also posted draws against Egypt and Togo. These are seasoned sides,” he added.

Kenya are pooled in Group E alongside East African rivals Uganda and Rwanda as well as Mali.

The winner of the group will make it to the final phase of the qualifiers.
