The team which has been in camp for the last two weeks left for Khartoum on Saturday afternoon, beaming with confidence they will start their campaign positively.
Speaking to CAFOnline, Kamau is impressed with the quality and level of fitness exhibited by his players and believes getting the tactics right in the away trip will be crucial in keeping the Zambia dream alive.
“It is not an easy match especially noting we are going to play in a country that has very high temperatures. We have tried to align our training sessions to around the same conditions and I think we are ready for the challenge.
“I have tried to get a few clips of their matches to know how they play and I know it will not be an easy outing but my boys are ready for the challenge,” said Kamau.
The team has played and won two friendly matches, 2-1 against top tier side Ushuru FC and beating second tier side FC Talanta 1-0.
Midfielder Amos Nondi who was recently promoted by Kenyan champions Gor Mahia FC to the senior team from the junior ranks will skipper the side and he is confident he will anchor the boys to Zambia.
“We want to make history and be the first Kenyan youth team to go to an African championship. We believe in ourselves. The coach has made us believe in ourselves as well and our aim is to start well with the first leg. We know it is not an easy outing especially starting away, but we are up to the task,” Nondi told CAF Online.
