Kenneth Muguna revealed what a privilege it is to represent Kenya and has vowed to give his best when the Harambee Stars take on Uganda on Sunday.

The Gor Mahia skipper is expected to play a part against their bitter rivals after in an international friendly.

The 2016 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) started the season on a high note for K'Ogalo and is confident of replicating his form for the national team.

"The training in camp has been intense, and I can confidently say we are ready for Uganda," Muguna told Goal on Friday.

"It will not be an easy match because we understand it is a derby. Both teams are fighting for the bragging rights meaning we will have to work extra hard on the pitch to get a win.

"I take this opportunity to urge the fans to turn up in large numbers and support us, we will give our best for a win."

Muguna is delighted to get an opportunity of representing the nation and is keen on proving his critics wrong.
