Australia based Bruce Kamau and Spain based Ismail Gonzalez have been been invited to the Kenya national team Harambee Stars by head coach Stanley Okumbi ahead of two friendly matches scheduled for later in May.
Kenya is scheduled to play Sudan on Friday 27 May before playing Tanzania on 29 May ahead of the Sunday 5 June AFCON qualifier against Congo and the coach has extended the invite to Gonzalez, who is in Las Palmas Academy in Spain while Bruce Kamau is in Melbourne City books.
According to communication from the federation, Gonzalez, born of a Spanish mother and a Kenyan father has already agreed to the invitation and is expected to link up with the rest of the Harambee Stars squad, when the team assembles for camp.
The statement further notes that Kamau is undecided on his next step as the Australia national team has shown interest in him and is said to be weighing his options before making a decision.
“I think it is important that we have a look at all players available, including the two. The talks with Gonzalez have been very positive, while Kamau is yet make a decision as there is interest for his services elsewhere.
“But we are optimistic that we will have both of them available for selection in the upcoming friendlies,” Harambee Stars tactician Okumbi said.
