Nairobi - Kenya's stand-in Harambee Stars captain, Victor Wanyama on Tuesday pledged to lead his side to victory over Nigerian Super Eagles as tribute to suspended duo of regular skippers, Dennis Oliech and Arnold Origi.
The African champions have arrived in Nairobi for the Wednesday 2014 World Cup qualifying Group F clash that will be played at the Moi International Sports Centre.
"We have a big group and there are some players who can replace Oliech and Arnold. It is a big blow for our team but we have to move on and do well for them," said the midfielder who is attracting interest from a host of English Premier League clubs.
"If we win, it will be the best for them too because they wanted to be here and it is sometimes annoying for a player to be out of the game. We just want to give them a good result so that they can come back feeling well for the next match."
