The Harambee Stars camp has been boosted by the arrival of Beijing Renhe forward Ayub Timbe.
Timbe has been in fine form since undergoing surgery in January, and provided the assist for the second Beijing Renhe goal when they won 2-0 against Tianjin Tianhai on June 1.
Since playing for Harambee Stars in the 2-1 defeat to Sierra Leone in Group F’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying opener in Free Town, Timbe was suspended for three matches by Caf for indecent behaviour and did not feature in the subsequent qualifiers.
Timbe suffered a knee injury in December while playing for his Chinese side and underwent surgery on January 3, further ruling him out of international duty.
His arrival comes hours after Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa told Goal exclusively from France that he was happy that the team has settled in well in the residential camp.
“We are happy with how the team has settled in and the preparation around the Afcon campaign,” said Mwendwa.
“As a federation, we continue to appeal to our fans back home to get behind the team, this even as we thank the government and our partners Betin for the critical role they have played in making this camp a reality.”
Sweden-based Eric Johanna, Ovella Ochieng, and Eric Ouma will also link up with the team on Monday, while Victor Wanyama will check in on Tuesday.
The FKF has lined up two friendly matches, against Madagascar on June 7, 2019, in Paris and against DR Congo on June 15, 2019, in Madrid.
The team will then jet out to Cairo, Egypt, on June 19, 2019, in time for the continental showpiece. Kenya will play her Group C matches at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo.
