Tusker defender Eugene Asike has replaced teammate Collins Shivachi in the 29 man Harambee stars provisional squad, set to report to camp on Monday, May 23, 2016, ahead of two international friendlies scheduled for next week.
The player has been dropped after the technical bench expressed concerns over his fitness.
“It is true, we have replaced Shivachi with Asike,”said Harambee Stars First Coach Stanley Okumbi.
“We are concerned with his fitness level and have thus decided to replace him as a precautionary measure,” added Okumbi.
Stars are set to play two friendly matches in the upcoming international break, in preparation for the team’s Afcon qualifier against Congo, set for June 5, 2016, in Nairobi,
In the first encounter, scheduled for May 27, 2016, Kenya will field a squad of emerging stars to take on Sudan, before facing Tanzania on May 29, 2016, in a full international friendly.
