Oliech, Jamal left out of Harambee Stars squad for Comoros
28 May 2014, 14:42
Nairobi - Former captain Dennis Oliech and midfielder Jamal Mohammed have been left out of the national team's travelling party to the Comoros for AFCON 2015 qualifying.
Oliech has been left out due to his absence from camp for the better part of the last ten days while Jamal is believed to have been ill.
The two were the most high profile names to miss out as the Stars travel to Moroni to defend a 1-0 lead picked up at the Nyayo Stadium ten days ago.
Jacob Keli will likely start in Oliech's place with his AFC Leopards counterpart Allan Wanga the most probable lead striker in the group, having been handed a wider role in the Nairobi clash.
MacDonald Mariga will replace Jamal in the side after an impressive cameo in the Nyayo Stadium clash.
Arnold Origi will start in goal after making it on time for camp after missing out on the first clash through club commitments.
The Stars leave at 2.30 PM aboard Fly 540.
