4 Key Harambee Stars Players Left out of AFCON Qualifier Squad Against Mo Salah's Egypt

Four Kenyan Key Players will miss the Harambee Stars squad for the remaining Afcon qualifiers against Togo and Egypt at home and away respectively in a must win matches for the nation to progress.

Among those who were omitted by the head coach, Jacob Mule are Ayub Timbe (Japan), Eric Johanna (Swededmn(, Arnold Origi and Victor Mugubi Wanyama(Former Tottenham player and Montreal Impact mid fielder).

Wanyama who is the Harambee Stars captain might have been excluded from the squad mainly because of his fitness concerns and having not played much in his current club since November last year. His absence could be an opportunity for Olunga Michael’s chance to be awarded the Captaincy mantle. Olunga has been missing in the squad for almost a year now due to the Covid-19 pandemic that led to travel restrictions imposed while he was in his former Japanese club.
