The Kenya national team will on Wednesday 7 October take on Mauritius in a 2018 World Cup qualifier, the seventh ever meeting between the two nations’ senior teams.
Ahead of the game we explore the probable team that could be sent out to do duty, considering the options available for head coach Bobby Williamson.
The coach had a massive boost in the arrival of skipper Victor Wanyama on Tuesday 6 October, with two others in tow, to make the available foreign based players five.
Wanyama arrived with Johanna Omollo and Ayub Timbe to join Allan Wanga and Teddy Akumu who traveled with the home based players on Sunday 4 October.
With first choice keeper Arnold Origi unavailable, Bobby is most likely to start with Gor Mahia keeper Boniface Oluoch in goal with Harun Shakava and David Ochieng pairing in central defence.
The coach is expected to deploy a three man block midfield with Wanyama, Akumu and Johanna Omollo deployed theough Omollo could also serve as the creative midfielder.
Michael Olunga will once again earn the starting role, to lead the strike force that will also have Ayub Timbe and Allan Wanga in an expected 4 – 2 – 1 – 3 formation.
Starting XI: Boniface Oluoch (GK), Edwin Wafula, Harun Shakava, David Ochieng, Dennis Odhiambo, Victor Wanyama, Anthony Akumu, Johanna Omollo, Ayub Timbe, Allan Wanga, Michael Olunga.
Subs: David Okello (GK), Eric Johanna, Musa Mohamed, Kelvin Amwayi, John Nairuka, Abdulatif Omar, Steven Wakhanya, John Ndirangu.
