Rivals Uganda, Kenya Play To 1 All Draw In International Build Up

East African rivals Kenya and Uganda played to a 1-1 draw in their international friendly at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Thursday.


Both teams were using the match as preparation for group phase qualifiers in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, which get underway with matchday one fixtures in June.
