Otieno hopes to make Harambee Stars impression

30 July 2014, 14:14

Nairobi - Timothy Otieno admits it is a "great honour" to have received a call up to the Kenya team ahead of Sunday's crunch AFCON qualifier.

The Harambee Stars play host to the second-leg tie this weekend, trailing 1-0 from the reverse fixture, meaning they need nothing less than victory to book their place at next year's Morocco showpiece.

And, having been handed a vote of confidence by the Kenyan coaching staff, Gor Mahia forward Otieno is hoping he can repay the faith come this weekend.

"It is a great honour to be called up to the national team so early in my career and I am happy about it. My expectations are to make an impression," he said.

"I know that there are very many good players here who have experience, so I want to learn from them and also do my best.

"I would like to play against Lesotho but it is too early for me to say."
