Harambee Starlets squad unveiled for continental showpiece

Harambee Starlets coach David Ouma has named his provisional squad of 21 players who will represent the country at the African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) championships in Yaoundé , Cameroon.

Defenders; Ambogo Elizabeth Mwikali, Asol Wendy-Ann Achieng, Ogutu Irene Awuor, Nixon Dorcas Shikobe, Omondi Carolyne Anyango, Ogiro Doris Anyango, Onyango Ann Aluoch, Odaa Lilian Adera.

Midfielders: Salano Cheris Avilia, Corazone Vivian Aquino, Ogol Jacky, Lydia Akoth, Christine Nafula.
