Harambee Stars is sweating on the availability of striker Michael Olunga ahead of their upcoming AFCON Qualifiers doubleheader against Comoros.
Stars head coach Francis Kimanzi is expected to name his foreign-based stars for the same duties late this week but Olunga might miss due to the ongoing cases of Coronavirus.
The Kenyan government has banned flights from countries prone to the virus and Olunga might fail to travel to the country as Japan is considered risky.
The Japanese J1 League has been suspended indefinitely due to the same outbreak with Olunga’s Kashiwa Reysol and all the teams in the league having been out of action for the past three weeks.
The absence of Olunga will be a big blow for a Stars side who has majorly relied on the striker to lead her attack in recent games but the absence again might be good news for strikers who would want to give an impression for coach Kimanzi.
On that front, Kimanzi has already called the current Kenyan Premier League top scorer Timothy Otieno and AFC Leopards striker Elvis Rupia for his local-based players camp.
Kenya will play host to the islanders in Nairobi on March 25 and then travel to Moroni for the rematch six days later.
