Cecafa U20 Championship best goalkeeper Brian Bwire has pulled out of the team, forcing the coach to make late changes 

Brian Bwire's injury has forced Francis Kimanzi to make a change to his Harambee Stars Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup provisional squad.

Bwire has pulled out due to an injury and his place has been taken by experienced Samuel Odhiambo of Western Stima.

Timothy Otieno, who has scored seven goals so far in the season, has also been called up alongside Bandari's Mohammed Katana.

Otieno's inclusion adds the number of strikers in the team to five. The former Gor Mahia striker scored in four games for Tusker in November.

Defending champions Kenya have been pooled in Group C alongside Djibouti, Tanzania and Zanzibar.

In Group A, Uganda, Burundi, Ethiopia, and Eritrea will battle for the two top spots while the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, South Sudan, and Somalia have been pooled in Group B.
