CHAN Q: Migne calls-up Tusker midfielder for TZ return

As Kenya begin preparations for the return-leg fixture against Tanzania in the 2020 CHAN qualifiers set for this Sunday 4 August, Soka understands that Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne has called-up Tusker FC midfielder Boniface Muchiri to camp.

Stars drew 0-0 with Taifa Stars on Sunday 28 in Dar Es Salaam and now need to win at the MISC Kasarani to progress to the second and final round of the qualifiers.

Migne had named a 22-man squad that travelled to Tanzania and has now decided to add more firepower to try and break down Etienne Ndayiragije’s men.

Breakout

Muchiri had a breakout 2018-19 season in terms of goals, scoring 12 in the league for the Brewers and many were baffled as to why he had not been included in the initial squad.

A win for Stars on Sunday will set up a two-legged tie against Sudan in the final round to try and reach, for the first time, the continental showpiece designed only for players plying their trades in their respective countries.

In a bid to have the Kasarani Stadium filled to capacity, FKF has slashed the ticket prices for the game to an all-round price of KSHS 100.
