Nairobi, KENYA: Harambee Stars head coach Sebastian Migne has summoned 30 players for the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifier tie against Sierra Leone scheduled for November 18.

China based winger Ayub Timbe, England based duo Johan Ayunga and Henry Ochieng alongside Masud Juma are the new faces in the team, with Timbe returning having served his three match ban.

Stars will continue its preparations while waiting for the decision from world football governing body FIFA on Sierra Leone suspension. The West African nation, who beat Kenya 2-1 June in the opening round were banned by FIFA last month due to government interference.

The decision forced the Confederation of African Football (Caf) to cancel their double header against Ghana in October as Kenya picked four points from Ethiopia over two legs to top the group on seven points.
