The continental showpiece will be held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast from December 1 to 18. Ulinzi, who suffered a 2-1 defeat to KCB on Saturday at Afraha Stadium to finish sixth on the log, are pooled alongside Gambia and Burkina Faso.

Coach Sammy Simiyu has named a strong-17 man squad that will report for duty on Wednesday 14 November. They will then shift their training base to Mombasa for a few weeks.

Harambee Stars duo Geoffrey Kokoyo and James Mulinge Ndetto, as well as leading striker Evans Amuoka are expected to lead the Kenya Defense Forces’ representatives at the two-and-a-half week tournament.

The Nakuru-based side qualified for the 2011 World Military Games in Brazil after finishing second in the 2010 event held in Uganda.

Goalkeepers: Jacktone Odhiambo and James Saruni.

Defenders: Kevin Ouma, Oliver Rutto, Josiah Okello, Mulinge James, Richard Chege, Geoffrey Kokoyo.

Midfielders: Stephen Ochollah, Stephen Waruru, Antony Nderitu, Lawrence Owino, Chester Okoyo, George Oyoo

Strikers: Ibrahim Ismail, Allan Muhati, Evans Amwoka. Coach: Sammy Simiyu, Assistants: Hussein Mohammed and Francis Onyiso.
