Harambee Stars head coach Engin Firat has named plenty new faces to his squad for the World Cup Qualifiers against Rwanda and Uganda.

Amos Nondi, now in Georgia with Dilagori FC as well as Sweden based Anthony Wambani and Armenia based Alwyn Tera are among the new faces in the team.

Belgium based midfielder Wilkins Ochieng who turns out for Club Brugge is also a new inclusion into the side.

The Turkish tactician who will be taking charge of his final two matches for the national team has also handed a recall to Gor Mahia defender Philemon Otieno and midfielder Teddy Akumu who had been overlooked in the first four games.

Henry Meja has not been recalled as he waits for his transfer to Swedish top tier side AIK to materialize, he joins Zambia based David Owino who has been left out as well.

Impressive Nairobi City Stars midfielder Timothy Ouma has also been handed his first ever call up to the national team. Ismael Dunga who plays in Japan for Sagan Tosu has also been handed a re-call to the national team.

Stars face Uganda on November 11 at St. Mary’s Stadium Kitende, and finish off the woeful World Cup qualification campaign against Rwanda on November 15 at the Nyayo National Stadium.

Stars are winless in four matches, same as Rwanda both of who will only play for formality. Uganda is second in the group and desperately need points against Kenya to boost their qualification hopes.
