Oliech out of Nigeria qualifier fixture

Tuesday October 27, 2009

Striker Dennis Oliech has been ruled out of the match against Nigeria next month. Coach Antoine Hey has insisted that his decision to drop the Auxerre striker from the national team is final. Kenyan coaches had written to Hey asking him to recall the striker who was dropped for the away match in Tunisia. At the same time, Hey has recalled Thika United’s Abdulatif Omar to the camp at Kasarani as goalkeeper Willis Ochieng joined the camp. Meanwhile, the Harambee Stars are scheduled to play Kuwait in a build-up match ahead of the tie against Nigeria. The date of the match is yet to be confirmed.
