Nandwa recalls Stars' duo



Stars caretaker coach James Nandwa has recalled Sony Sugar forward Enock Agwanda and Tusker FC midfielder Peter Opiyo ahead of the return leg of the African Nations Championships (CHAN) qualifier against Burundi.

Confirming the duo’s return to the national team, Nandwa said that his strategy going into the return match is to get goals very early in the match, hence the decision to give power to the attack force.

“We are aware that we need to win the match with at least two goals for us to proceed to the next stage and we can only achieve this by making sure we score early in the return match. It is because of this that I decided to call the two players to the team, as this will increase the pool of players from which I can pick to start,” said Nandwa.

“I believe the two will work well with Moses Arita, Paul Kiongera, Mike Baraza and Francis Kahata upfront, further bettering our chances of emerging from the match with a victory.”

The team is currently on a break and will regroup after the Christmas festivities. Kenya lost the opening leg 1-0 and will be looking for at least a two-goal win to progress.
