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.

Barcelona have appointed Ronald Koeman as their next coach, the club said in a statement on Wednesday, as the Catalans look to rebuild after their 8-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Koeman, who has left his role as manager of the Netherlands, has signed a two-year-deal with Barcelona, who sacked Quique Setien on Monday after he presided over the club’s worst defeat ever in European competition.

Koeman, who will be officially presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Wednesday, is dearly loved at Barca for his role in Johan Cruyff’s hugely successful side known as the ‘Dream Team’ and for scoring the goal that delivered the club’s first ever European Cup in 1992.

The defender later became the club’s assistant coach before embarking on a career as a head coach, managing Dutch sides Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord plus Premier League sides Southampton and Everton and La Liga’s Valencia.

“Barcelona and Ronald Koeman have come to an agreement for him to be the team’s coach until 30 June 2022,” said Barca’s statement.

“A club legend and Barca’s hero at Wembley who gave fans their first European Cup, Koeman is coming back to the Camp Nou. But this time he will be in the dugout to lead the team.”
