Michael Olunga among four Harambee Stars players to test positive for COVID-19

Four Harambee Stars players have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. 

captain Michael Olunga, midfielder Lawrence Juma, defender Joash Onyango, and keeper Ian Otieno are the players in question and will miss the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match against Togo on Monday evening.

According to a source, the quartet tested positive alongside some members of the technical bench, forcing their omission from the team. 

In Otieno's absence, Ulinzi Stars keeper James Saruni will start in goal, with Clyde Senaji coming in for Joash. 

Nashon Alembi will feature alongside Senaji, with Masud Juma leading the line in place of Olunga.

Stars will be playing only for pride as there is no chance for their qualification, following their draw against Egypt last time out. 

Comoros and the Northern Africa side qualified from Stars' group.
