Nandwa calls up four more players



Harambee Stars coach James Nandwa has called up four more players for the return leg of a African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier against the Swallows of Burundi in Nairobi next month.

Mike Barasa, Paul Were (both AFC Leopards), Kevin Omondi and David Owino (both Gor Mahia) have been brought in following their impressive displays in the recently concluded Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Kampala.

To pave the way for the fresh faces, the former Rangers and Tusker FC tactician has dropped deputy skipper James Situma due to injury while Rama Salim has turned down a call-up due to personal commitments.

“We have made four additions to the team – Barasa, Were, Omondi and Owino. All of them are in camp with the rest of the team,” said Nandwa.

“I have been forced to drop Situma because he is nursing an injury as well as Rama who excused himself from the team. But I am happy with the response of the players in the first training session.”

In the first leg in Bujumbura, the Swallows edged Stars 1-0, but Nandwa is hopeful of overturning the deficit to advance to the next round.

Nandwa has been tasked with the duty of training the national team after French coach Henri Michel parted ways with the Football Kenya Federation.
