Tanzania based Jerry Santos has been named in the 23 man Harambee Stars squad that will face Tanzania’s Taifa Stars on Wednesday in an International Friendly match in Dar es salaam.
Santos did not feature in the Harambee Stars squad that played South Africa’s Bafana Bafana few weeks ago in Nairobi.Santos had been named in the team but could not link up with the team since his Tanzanian club(Coastal Union) was engaged in crucial league matches.
The only new face is Ulinzi Stars custodian Jacktone Odhiambo who is coming back after being snubbed in the previous squad.
Harambee Stars French-born coach Henri Michel has maintained virtually all the players who lost 2-1 to Bafana Bafana at the Nyayo National Stadium.
The team reports for training camp on Sunday November 11th at the Moi International Sports centre Kasarani before embarking on the regional Cecafa Challenge Cup that gets underway from November 24th in Kampala,Uganda.
