Stars head for Tunisia on Sunday



Harambee Stars will leave for Tunisia on Sunday.

This is after the Libyan Football Federation sent air tickets for the traveling party that includes 24 players and eight officials.

With all the players having confirmed participation for the clash, the team’s head coach James Nandwa has confirmed that they will leave early Sunday and expect to be there some time in the afternoon.

“We will leave early on Sunday for Tunisia. The trip is simple. We will head to Egypt and then connect to Tunis from there,” he said.

“The party that will leave here will include the newly called up players and none of the foreign based players, who will meet us in Tunisia. So far we are happy with our preparations and hope that we can pick up a good result.

“The players are all happy to be here and a part of this assignment, so we hope for the best. Victory is our agenda there and so far I am confident we can do well.”

The foreign based players that will link up with the Stars in Tunisia are Dennis Oliech, Ayub Timbe, Arnold Origi and Victor Wanyama, and Nandwa expects them by Monday.

“We expect them to be there by Monday. Initially, I had hoped to have more of them around but we have been unlucky with a number of factors. However, those that are here will do for us as their quality is top notch,” he added.

The friendly match against the Libyan national team is set for Wednesday 6 February.
