Origi Back On Harambee Stars Team For Zambia Friendly

Harambee Stars coach Francis Kimanzi has named a 34-man provisional squad for the team’s upcoming friendly match against Zambia.

The coach welcomes back experienced goalkeeper Arnold Origi, who has been out of international football for five years. Barnsley defender Clarke Oduor has also been handed a call-up.

Influential forward Michael Olunga, Captain Victor Wanyama, and midfielder Johanna Omollo, in the meantime, may miss out on the final squad owing to the strict COVID-19 protocols imposed by the countries from which they ply their trade. FKF is, however, actively engaging their clubs with a view of having the players available for the friendly.

The match, which is a build-up to the upcoming back to back Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers against Comoros, has been scheduled for October 10, 2020, at the MISC Kasarani, behind closed doors.
