Dates for the third round of 2020 Tokyo Olympics qualifier pitting Harambee Starlets against Ghana have been released.

Starlets will start away in Ghana on October 4 with the return tie set to be played four days later in Kenya.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) revealed the team will depart for Ghana on October 2nd and return a day after the match.

Kenya beat Malawi 5-3 on aggregate in the second round while the Black Queens thrashed Gabon 5-0 on aggregate. Kenya and Ghana played to a 1-1 draw in a friendly match played at Kasarani in November last year.
