Kenya one goalkeeper reveals to Goal that he remains motivated to fight for a starting place in Stars' squad for 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers

Kenyan number one goalkeeper Arnold Origi has admitted that it has been difficult for him to stay out of Harambee Stars' last three matches and is looking forward to a quick come back.

The Norwegian top Division side Lillestrom custodian missed the return leg of a World Cup qualifier against Nigeria due to suspension. After that he missed two other World Cup qualifiers against Malawi and Namibia owing to injury.

“It has been a difficult moment for me staying out of those matches because I was needed to help the team but this is nature of football. One day you are out the next moment you are back and so it is something I have learnt to accept since this is not the first time it is happening,” Origi told Goal.

Origi says he remains motivated to fight for a starting place in Stars' squad for 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers which kicks-off next year. “It will be difficult coming back into the team but that is a good challenge for me and I am ready to take it on so that I regain starting role.”
