The 34-year old Odhiambo, who has been capped three times before, was elated that his hard work had attracted the eyes of the national team selectors

Gor Mahia dreadlocked midfielder Moses Odhiambo has vowed to cement his place in the national team Harambee Stars after earning a call up by Frenchman Henri Michel.

The 34-year old Odhiambo, who has been capped three times before, was elated that his hard work had attracted the eyes of the national team selectors.

“I did not know he (Henri Michel) was impressed by my performance. I have been working had to help my club Gor Mahia to win games. I thank God for the call up and i will continue working hard even for the national team,” said Odhiambo who has also turned out for Tusker FC and APR of Rwanda.

Michel on Thursday named a provisional squad of 28 players that starts residential training at Moi Kasarani on Monday ahead of the Council of East and Central Africa Senior Challenge Cup slated for Kampala, Uganda in November.

Odhiambo has been impressive for Gor Mahia since the coming of Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusic with his indefatigable performances.

Five players are primed to make their official debuts in the squad while another five, all of whom feature in the Kenyan Premier League have been offered a chance to resurrect their international careers.

The incoming players include Gor Mahia's Solomon Nasio, Christopher Wekesa and Leonard Mosoti, Ulinzi Stars forward Wilfred Ochomo, AFC Leopards Edwin Wafula and little known Thika United midfielder John Nairuka.
