He may be rotting on the APR bench and fast becoming a forgotten man but midfielder Moses Odhiambo has been recalled to the Kenyan national team.

The dreadlocked winger has been summoned to join Harambee Stars ahead of the 2010 African Nations/World Cup qualifiers against Tunisia set for March 28 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The APR midfielder will join 40-man provisional squad which will battle for the 18 slots available as Kenya kick off its campaign for South Africa 2010 next month.

Young Africans striker Bernard Mwalala is among the six Tanzania based players who became surprise inclusions to the squad after a long spell on the sidelines due to either oversight or deliberate omission.

Home-based-players are expected to assemble on Monday to start training sessions under newly acquired German tactician Antoine Hey, while the foreign based ones are to join the squad in the final week of training.

Kenya’s French based prolific striker Dennis Oliech, who features for top flight side of AJ Auxerre, has also been called but is likely to not to turn up due to club commitments.
