Harambee Stars head coach Engin Firat has made four changes to his line up as Kenya prepare to host Mali in the return leg of Group “E”, 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers to be played at Nyayo National Stadium today (Sunday) from 4pm.

In the team, Firat has handed Brian Bwire a start in the goalkeeping position replacing both Ian Otieno and Farouk Shikalo who featured on Thursday when Kenya was hammered 5-0 by Mali in Morocco.

Apart from the goalkeeping position, Firat has also brought in Abdallah Hassan, Boniface Muchiri and Duke Abuya in place of Joash Onyango, Henry Meja and Lawrence Juma.

Stanley Okumu and Johnstone Omurwa are retained as center backs with Erick Ouma and Abud Omar playing at the left and right back respectively.

The midfield will see Richard Odada and Kenneth Muguna play alongside Abdallah Hassan and Duke Abuya as Boniface Muchiri and Michael Olunga strike.
