Nandwa wants smooth preparations



Harambee Stars head coach James Nandwa is hoping the national team will have smooth and uninterrupted training as it prepares for the February 6 friendly match with Libya.

A bulk of the Harambee Stars players reported back to camp on Sunday 27 January and Nandwa’s wish is to have them in camp until after the friendly match.

“We need to have uninterrupted training sessions throughout so as to be cohesive. Breaking camp now and then affects the team negatively,” Nandwa said.

“My desire is to have all the players by the latest this evening (Monday) so that we can train together until Sunday. If this happens my heart will be at peace and I know we will perform well against Libya,” he added.

Nandwa has called up 15 locally-based players and the squad will be boosted by the arrival of foreign-based players and he (Nandwa) hopes they (foreign pros) will also be released by their clubs in good time.

“We also need to have at least three to four sessions with them for obvious reasons so I also pray that they will join the team in good time,” Nandwa concluded.

The friendly was earlier scheduled to be played in Libya but due to political unrest, it will now be played in Tunisia.
