Ahead of Harambee Stars Africa Nations Championship qualifier against Tanzania, Wazito FC forward Dennis Otanga has earned a late call to the national team squad.
The newly signed Wazito ace has received the called alongside Ulinzi Stars midfielder Ibrahim Shambi, who was part of the Kenya U23 team that lost to Sudan in the 2020 Olympic Qualifiers early this year.
The team is set to kick off residential training on Friday, ahead of the first leg, set to be played on July 28, 2019, in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, with the return leg scheduled a week later on August 4, at the MISC Kasarani.
Kenya will be hoping to make a maiden appearance at the continent’s second-tier national football competition, which is exclusively reserved for players actively featuring in their respective domestic leagues. Should Harambee Stars go past Tanzania in the first round, they will come up against Sudan in the second and final qualifying round.
