Come and cheers us against Uganda Cranes, Olunga urges local fans


Kenya international Michael Olunga has pleaded with soccer fans to come out in their large numbers to support Harambee Stars as they take on Uganda in a friendly match at the Kasarani Stadium on Sunday.
Olunga said the team is ready for the match and the players are ready to give their fans a good game.
“We just pray that they (fans) may come in large numbers to support us and us as players we are promising to give our level best come on Sunday,” said the Kashiwa Reysol forward.
Kenya, under new coach Francis Kimanzi, will use the friendly to prepare for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers starting in November.
Olunga has been a darling for most soccer fans after his performance at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations where he scored two goals.
Meanwhile, all the foreign-based players who were called for the match have arrived with the latest to touch base was China-based winger Ayub Timbe, who arrived on Wednesday.
Stars will miss the services of their skipper Victor Wanyama, who failed to strike a move away from Tottenham Hotspur.
