Harambee Starlets coach David Ouma has backed his ‘refreshed’ squad to triumph when they face neighbors Ethiopia in Saturday’s friendly at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Ouma says at least 75 percent of the current crop of players in the squad are new in the team after they were scouted across various competitions.

The tactician has promised an attacking display from his charges who have been in residential training since Monday.

“We have put in a lot of effort in training and it’s now time for me to assess how well my players can perform,” Ouma said.

“Ethiopia is a good side. We lost to them at the CECAFA Women Championships last year in Rwanda so it will be an end to end affair. We are going to attack and I’m confident we’ll give a positive result,” he added.

The match, which will kick off at 3pm (EAT), will act as a build-up for the upcoming Olympics Qualifier against Malawi.

The first leg will be played on August 28 in Blantyre, with the return match slated for September 4 in Nairobi.
