Stars face Libya in Tunis



Harambee Stars will take on the Libya Greens in an international friendly to be played at the Stade Taïeb Mhiri, in Tunis on Wednesday.

In terms of world ranking, the two teams are miles apart, with Libya seating at position 47 and Kenya being ranked 127th.

Being staged on a Fifa international friendly date, the outcome of the match has the potential of shifting the positions of the two teams. Of their past six international matches, Libya have won three, drawn one and lost two.

Kenya have achieved similar results, having also won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six international matches.

With the return of Europe-based players Victor Wanyama, Arnold Origi and Dennis Oliech to the Harambee Stars, the team bears the potential of getting victory.

Libya’s head coach Abdulhafeed Arbich has stalwarts Faisal Al Badri, Mohammed Sanany, Salem Ablou and Farag Abdulhafeed in his attack-force, and with the climatic conditions favouring them, they will be confident.

Kenya’s Probable Starting XI:

Arnold Origi [GK], Jockins Atudo, Abdalla Juma, David Owino, David Ochieng, Victor Wanyama, Francis Kahata, Peter Opiyo, Clifton Miheso, Paul Kiongera, Dennis Oliech [Cpt].

Subs: Duncan Ochieng, Boniface Oluoch, Antony Kimani, Charles Okwemba, Paul Were, David Gateri, Kevin Omondi, Rama Salim, Humphrey Mieno, Jesse Were.

Libya’s Probable Starting XI:

Mohammed Nashnoush, Abdurrahman Lamaamy, Osama Ashteba, Walid Sabai, Muatassim B’Allah Al-Bagrmy, Abu-Bakr Al-Obaidy, Mohammed Shebly, Faisal Al Badri, Mohammed Sanany, Salem Ablou, Farag Abdulhafeed

Subs: Mahmoud El Houderi, Mohammed Al Ghanoudi (Al Ahli, Tripoli), Mohammed L’Ghwel (Swehli FC, Misrata), Muatassim B’Allah Boushnaaf (Union Sportif (US) Monastir, Tunisia)
