Kenya Recall Skipper Mambo After Pressure

After being left out of the provisional squad for next month's World Cup qualifying tie against Tunisia, Kenya's football authorities have bowed to public pressure and recalled skipper Robert Mambo.

The inspirational midfielder, who plays for Swedish club GIF Sundsvall in the Superettan (second division), will now battle for a first-team place alongside Jamal Mohamed, McDonald Mariga, Austin Makacha and Osborne Monday.

Mambo will be travelling with his team GIF Sundsvall to Malta for pre-season training ahead of the start of the Swedish league season that kicks off on April 12.

He will join the Harambee Stars squad together with the other overseas-based players on March 23, five days before the game against Tunisia in Nairobi.
