The hunger for success with the national team Harambee Stars has never been in doubt at the mention of striker Michael Olunga, who was one of the most prolific players for club and country in 2015.
The striker, who has since moved to Sweden, was the first to arrive in Guinea Bissau ahead of the 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against the hosts and with an almost assured starting berth, he will be looking to lead the team to glory.
The striker says he arrived early so he can have the advantage of getting to settle fast since with away matches there needs to be ample time to adapt to the changes and he is calling on all of his mates to play their part in the team’s success.
“I came early because firstly, I had time after we played on Saturday I requested to be allowed to leave early and also because I knew we are playing away and so many things are involved in terms of preparation and I wanted to settle here well in time.
“We just hope everyone will step on to the pitch and give their all and then the results will show,” he said.
