CECAFA U20: Kenya team to face Tanzania named

Kenya U20 head coach Stanely Okumbi has made a little change from the side that beat Zanzibar in their opening game of the CECAFA U20 Tournament when they come against Tanzania on Tuesday 24 September in Jinja.

Captain Brian Bwire will maintain his place between the sticks for Kenya with Okumbi relegating Alvin Ochieng to the bench, his place taken by Brian Wepo with another change seeing John Njuguna giving way for Austine Otieno.

Striker Sydney Lokale will hope that he can add to his four goals tally as the team seek to qualify to the quarterfinals of the tournament.

On their side, Tanzania who will act as the host team in the tie has included Kelvin John in their team to lead their goal hunt.
