Nandwa enlists Mangoli and Ochieng



After dismissing disgraced duo Paul Were and Kevin Omondi from the national team squad for poor discipline, Harambee Stars head coach James Nandwa has called up two replacements.

Nandwa has recalled AFC midfielder Bernard Mangoli to take the place of Omondi, while AFC striker Victor Ochieng has stepped into Were’s position.

Explaining his decision, Nandwa said that he is looking to boost his team’s fire-power as they need a win or a draw against Ethiopia to keep alive their hopes of progressing to the next round of the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.

“We need goals in the match against Ethiopia and the earlier we get them in the match, the easier it will be for us to emerge from the match with a victory. I am sure that the two players I have called up will offer the needed support upfront,” said Nandwa.

“We currently stand a very good chance of moving on to the next stage, the round of eight, as long as we give our best in the match against Ethiopia, we should easily meet this goal.”

Were and Omondi were sent home to Kenya after sneaking out of the team’s camp in Kampala for a night out on the town.
