This is how you can watch Harambee Stars take on Gabon in their opening World Cup qualifier match on Thursday.

Harambee Stars will be taking on Gabon in a crunch 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixture at the Stade de Franceville on Thursday.

Both sides have been drawn in Group F, alongside Burundi, Seychelles, Gambia and two-time Africa Cup of Nations champions Ivory Coast.

Having been excluded from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers due to a FIFA suspension, Kenya brought their friendly schedules to an end on October 16 when they played out to a 2-2 against Russia at the Mardan Sports Complex in Turkey.

Engin Firat's men have now featured in six friendly matches since the turn of the year, picking up one draw, losing three, and claiming victories over Pakistan and Qatar respectively.

As they take part in their first competitive fixture in two years, Pulse Sports is now aware where fans will get to follow both sides' clash on Thursday night from 7:00 PM EAT.

Where will the match be streamed?

Aside from just the Gabon vs Kenya match, you will be able to watch all Matchday 1 African qualifiers on FIFA+ with English commentary from anywhere in the world, with the exception of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, sub-Saharan Africa*, India and Portugal.

* It will be possible to follow the matches live in sub-Saharan Africa in the following countries: Benin, Burundi, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Malawi, Sao Tome e Principe, Seychelles, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
