This will be the second time that Van Geneugden will be facing Harambee Stars having settled for a 0-0 draw in his first meeting

  1.  Ian Otieno
    Goal Kenya.

    #1 Ian Otieno

    The goalkeeper is expected to take Patrick Matasi's position in goal and prove his worth. He has been doing good in the Zambian league keeping more than ten clean sheets. This keeper has a challenge of removing Matasi from the goal but before that he has to show he can stop the Flames.

  2. David ‘Cheche’ Ochieng’
    Goal Kenya.

    ‘Cheche’ came in after Joash Onyango's dismissal against Ghana. He went on to put a perfect display as ten man Kenya managed to get maximum points against the Black Stars on Saturday. With David Owino out, Joseph Akumu might be given a chance to partner the former Tusker FC defender.

  3. Erick Ouma
    Goal Kenya.

    Aboud Omar has been excellent for Kenya once called to duty but that does not mean 'Marcelo' is less talented. He is energetic and has always gives more than 100% on the pitch. Against Malawi, Ouma will be required to help in attack and bring crosses for the strikers to capitalize on.

  4.  Anthony Akumu
    Goal Kenya.

    It was surprising to see ‘Teddy’ on the bench against the Black Stars. Akumu is expected to provide the cover for defense and create chances from the team's own half. With Dennis Odhiambo, Ismael Gonzalez and Victor Wanyama fighting for the same position, Akumu has to work harder.

  5. Jesse Were
    Ken Okaka.

    #5 Jesse Were

    He is expected to take Michael Olunga's position in the striking department. Despite his perfect record in club level, the lanky striker has struggled while with the national team. He has to show he can be considered against Ethiopia and by doing that he has to score goals against Malawi.
