History
Kenya has appeared in five Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, never reaching second round. The team entered its first FIFA World Cup qualifiers in 1974. As of 2018, they have never qualified for the final tournament.

FIFA suspensions and international bans
FIFA suspended Kenya from all football activities for three months in 2004, due to the interference of the government in football activities. The ban was reversed after the country agreed to create new statutes.[4]

On October 25, 2006, Kenya was suspended again from international football for failing to fulfill a January 2006 agreement made to resolve recurrent problems in their football federation. FIFA announced that the suspension would be in force until the federation complies with the agreements previously reached.[4][5]

Kenya are currently coached by Sébastien Migné.

Recent history (2004–present)
Kenya has qualified for a major international tournament in 2019 cup finals since the 2004 AFCON. The current head coach Sébastien Migné was appointed in May 2018,[6] and since his appointment Kenya has climbed back into the top 100 FIFA ranked nations.[7]

In May 2017, the Football Kenya Federation signed a 3-year partnership with kits manufacturer Mafro Sports to provide the kits for all national teams, as well as junior categories. The national team will use red jerseys for home matches, white jerseys for away matches, and green jerseys for matches played on neutral venues.[8][9]

On 8 September, Kenya earned a surprise win over four-time African champions Ghana, winning 1–0.[10]
