National Soccer team Harambee Stars started their training at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani in preparation for this weekend’s International Friendly match against Uganda Cranes.
13 locally-based players were part of the Harambee Stars squad that kicked off training at the Kasarani Stadium on Monday.
With more players set to report to camp over the week, head coach Francis Kimanzi will have to do without the services of captain Victor Wanyama, midfielder Johanna Omollo, and defender Joseph Okumu.
Wanyama was left out of the squad as he resolves his transfer complications with Tottenham Hotspur while Omollo is out injured, with Okumu still settling at his new club IF Elfsborg in Sweden.
Gor Mahia Midfielder Lawrence Wanyama has been named in Wanyama’s stead, with Ulinzi Stars Forward Enosh Ochieng and Bandari’s Bernard Otieno also been recalled.
Harambee Stars Head Coach, Francis Kimanzi, expects a tough test when the National team comes up against neighbours Uganda in a Friendly match on Sunday, 8th September, at the Kasarani Stadium.
Stars will use the friendly match to ascertain their preparedness ahead of their 2021 AFCON qualifying matches against Egypt and Togo.
