Waruru, who scored Ulinzi’s goal on Sunday against Chemelil to hand the soldiers a 1-0 win, is the latest player to join the team under coach Adel Amrouche
Ulinzi Stars attacking midfielder Stephen Waruru has been recalled to the national team Harambee Stars ahead of the 2013 World Cup qualifier against Nigeria in Nairobi on June 5.
Waruru, who scored Ulinzi’s goal over the weekend against Chemelil to hand the soldiers a 1-0 win, is the latest player to join the team under the tutelage of coach Adel Amrouche.
Waruru last featured for the national team during Zedekiah Otieno’s reign when he won the Kenyan Premier League golden boot in 2011. He is by far Ulinzi’s best attacking player and Coach Amrouche agrees to that.
“He is a good players and I have decided to give him a chance in the national team. We need players now that we have so many injuries in the team,” Amrouche told Goal.com.
“Gateri is out, Timbe is also out and so is Dennis Oliech. My philosophy is giving chance to the local based players who I believe have that capability to deliver good results.”
Amrouche’s camp has also been boosted by the arrival of Jamal Mohammed and Patrick Osiako who join Kepha Aswani, Jockins Atudo and Humprey Mieno as the foreign-based players who have linked up with the team.
Stars will host Nigeria at the Moi Kasarani next Wednesday in a match that they must win to keep alive the hopes of qualifying to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
