Victor Wanyama will make his Montreal Impact debut in Wednesday’s Concacaf Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash with Olimpia.

The 28-year-old joined the Major League Soccer side on a free transfer as a Designated Player on a three-year deal after falling out of favour at Tottenham Hotspur.

Wanyama’s maiden game will be in front of his new club’s home fans inside Olympic Stadium after he was named in Thierry Henry’s starting eleven for the clash against the Honduras side.

Also in the line-up are goalkeeper Clement Diop from Senegal and Algeria's Saphir Taider, while Nigeria's Orji Okonkwo will start from the bench.

Unbeaten in their last five games across all competitions, victory for Henry’s men over red-hot Olimpia will place them in a good position to qualify for the semi-final.

The return leg will be held on March 17 at Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula.
