Nandwa makes three changes



Three players have been replaced in Kenya’s Harambee Stars squad for the upcoming CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup to be held in Kampala.

Stars coach James Nandwa said that the injured duo of Tusker captain Joseph Shikokoti and AFC Leopards striker Allan Wanga, as well as Thika United’s winger Francis Kahata, will not feature in the regional tourney.

On-form Gor Mahia forward Kevin Omondi has traded with Kahata – who was been named by mistake as he’s in coach Henri Michel’s CHAN squad – while David Ochieng’ and Victor Ochieng’ have taken the places of their teammates-Shikokoti and Wanga respectively.

“Kahata was included in the squad by mistake but his place has now been taken by Omondi while Shikokoti and Wanga have been ruled out with injuries,” said Nandwa.

“Shikokoti is nursing a thigh injury while Wanga has not reported to camp, but we have been informed that he has an ankle injury. The replacements are good and I know the will fill their void.”

The tactician also revealed that he will trim down his squad to 20 players on Tuesday evening.

“We will hold our last training sessions tomorrow in the afternoon – thereafter I will release my final squad. We expect to drop five players before travelling on Thursday.”
