Harambee Stars are all set to take on Russia today, Monday, October 16, 2023, at 7 pm East African Time (EAT) in an international friendly at the Titanic Sports Complex in Antalya, Turkey. This marks only the second time that Kenya will be facing a European nation, with the first instance being a goalless draw against Switzerland in 1983.
