Who is Philip Mayaka the Harambee Stars Winger that Has Replaced Ayub Timbe in Firat Squad

Harambee stars coach Engin Firat has today named his squad ahead of the World Cup qualifiers match against Mali. The tactician has made alot of surprise calls in the national team as well as omitting some famous names.The squad is set to face Mali on 7th October before facing them again on 10th. However, one player that has captured my attention is Philip Mayaka..

Philip Mayaka plys his trade in the US with Colorado Springs. The young attacking midfielder who can also play as a winger is only 21years of age. Mayaka was spotted in Nairobi in 2019 by a US based agent called Potempa. Potempa is well known for his passion for football. His work is to give young talented players a platform to take their chances to another level.

For Mayaka it was his first time to board a plane and also his first time in the US. The young footballer took a little time to settle in the US and was promoted to the first team. Engin Firat promised Kenyans alot of change and indeed Mayaka is one of the surprise changes. He will taste the national team role for the first time.His skills did not go unnoticed and many fans have been satisfied by his talent. We wish the young midfielder all the best ahead.
