Johanna 'Tosh' Omollo made a comeback to the Harambee Stars onThursday against Uganda in a 1-1 draw.

"Well it was unfortunate that I could not attend the matches, I could not play for the country but it was excusable. We had been blessed with a child and I had to be there for my wife. I talked with coach (Okumbi), and we agreed that once done I will be back.

"Our match against Uganda Cranes was good, the team has tremendously improved and we will go places if we continue like this," he told Goal.

Omollo is expected to line-up for the Stars on Sunday against Congo DR.
