Michel calls up three more



Kenya coach Henri Michel has added three new names to his squad in preparation for next month’s two legged African Championship qualifier against Burundi.

Award-winning Tusker goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch has been recalled, as well as former Thika United defender Michael Bodo and Gor Mahia’s full-back Solomon Nasio.

Oluoch, who has been out of the national team set-up since the arrival of Michel in September, replaced Western Stima’s keeper Ben Roberts Mandela.

It was discovered that Roberts is ineligible to play for Stars as he once featured for the Rwanda national team, whilst plying his trade with APR.

Nasio and Bodo took the place of Ulinzi Stars pair Geoffrey Kokoyo and James Mulinge, who were released from national duty due to club commitments.

According to Football Kenya Federation spokesman John Kariuki, the new call-ups have already reported to camp at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.

“It’s somehow unbelievable with what we discovered about Mandela. But I am glad the player himself confessed to us and that’s why the coach recalled Oluoch,” said Kariuki.

“Bodo and Nasio have also been called up to replace the two Ulinzi defenders. All of them have reported to camp and are training with the rest of the players. As we speak right now, everything is okay.”

The Soldiers are currently training for the upcoming African Military Games to be held in early December in Ivory Coast. Apart from the trio, Jacktone Odhiambo of Ulinzi has also been replaced by AFC Leopards shot-stopper Patrick Matasi.
