PARIS, France, Jun 7 – National football team Harambee Stars are in their sixth day of residential training in Marcoussis, a suburb of the French capital France ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) which kicks off on June 21 in Cairo, Egypt.
The team is being hosted at the French Rugby Federation headquarters which also hosts a state-of-the-art training complex complete with all facilities needed for top level training.
The French men and women’s teams for both 15s and 7s train at this complex and in a few days, Stars will share the same facility with the 15s side preparing for the Rugby World Cup which will be held in Japan from September.
