Timbe pulls out of Stars squad



KRC Genk midfielder Ayub Timbe Masika has pulled out of the Harambee Stars squad to play the Mediterranean Knights of Libya on Wednesday in Tunisia.

Timbe becomes the third foreign-based player to withdraw from the national team after Brian Mandela [Cape Town Santos] and McDonald Mariga [Parma].

> Mandela is nursing injury, while Mariga, who recently joined Parma on loan from Inter Milan, is unavailable for selection due to personal reasons.

Confirming Timbe’s unavailability, Football Kenya Federation (FKF) NEC member Hussein Terry, who is also the head of Harambee Stars delegation, said they are expecting to have a full house by Tuesday.

“The technical bench communicated to Timbe and he said that he will not be traveling to Tunis. Anyway, we arrived safely and everybody is geared towards the match,” said Terry.

“We are expecting Dennis Oliech [AC Ajaccio] and David Gateri [ASD Cape Town] in the course of the day while Victor Wanyama [Celtic] will link-up with the team tomorrow.”

Apart from Lillestrom’s goalkeeper Arnold Origi, the other foreign-based players currently with the team in North Africa are Azam duo Jockins Atudo and Humprey Mieno.

Full Squad: Arnold Origi (Lillestrom), Duncan Ochieng (Sofapaka), Boniface Oluoch (Tusker), Jockins Atudo (Azam), David Owino (Gor Mahia), David Ochieng (Tusker), Abdalla Juma (Sofapaka), Antony Kimani (AFC Leopards), Victor Wanyama (Celtic), Francis Kahata (Thika United), Humphrey Mieno (Azam), Peter Opiyo (Tusker), Charles Okwemba (AFC Leopards), Clifton Miheso (Thika United), Paul Were (AFC Leopards), David Gateri (ASD Capetown), Kevin Omondi, Rama Salim, Mungai Kiongera (all Gor Mahia), Dennis Oliech (AC Ajaccio), Mike Baraza (AFC Leopards), Jesse Were (Tusker FC).
