Others in the squad include John Avire, who made a mark at the 2019 continental showpiece, Zesco United’s Teddy Akumu, sensational Michael Olunga and Belgium based Johanna Omollo.  

The team will kick off a non-residential training this Tuesday in Nairobi.

Stars will face Egypt on 14th this month in Cairo then lock horns with Togo on 19th this month at Kasarani stadium.

Kenya is in group ‘E’ together with Egypt, Togo, and Comoros in the race to qualify for the 2021 continental competition which will be held in Cameroun.

The winners and runners-up will qualify from each group except in Group F where Cameroon automatically qualifies as hosts with the highest placed of the other three teams.
