NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 30 – China based winger Ayub Timbe has been named in Harambee Stars’ provisional squad for next month’s 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Sierra Leone after completing his three-match ban.

Timbe played in the first leg against the Sierra Leonians but was slapped with a three match ban after receiving a red card after the final whistle in the charged game.

The former Belgium based winger will be a huge addition to head coach Sebastien Migne’s plans especially having hit top form at his club, though slowed down by a minor injury.

Migne has also named England-based duo of Henry Ochieng and Jonah Ayunga with the latter having earned a national team call up in 2016 when Kenya played a friendly against Uganda in Kampala.

Striker Masud Juma, currently in the United Arab Emirates has also earned a return to the team after settling well with his new lcub and hitting the ground running.
