All 22 Harambee Stars players who were called up for the Afcon 2019 qualifier double header against Ethiopia have arrived in Bahir Dar.

First batch of home-based professionals including coach Sebastien Migne arrived Saturday from Nairobi while the second lot jetted out Monday morning.

Foreign-based professionals led by captain Victor Wanyama of Tottenham Hotspur and Michael Olunga who plies his trade in Japan have all arrived from their bases.

Buoyed by last month’s 1-0 over Ghana, Stars will be hoping to consolidate their campaign by bagging another win in Group F.

With Sierra Leone, another member of the group suspended by FIFA, Stars could qualify by picking four points from the double header against Ethiopia.

The first leg of the two-legged clash will be staged Wednesday at Bahir Dar Stadium, Ethiopia with the return leg Sunday at the Kasarani Stadium.
