Miheso who currently plays for Olímpico Montijo in the Campeonato de Portugal is one of the promising players in Kenya having played for Thika United, Sofapaka and AFC Leopards in the local league as well South African side Golden Arrows Builddon FC in Zambian Superleague in the African soil before joining Portugal where he is currently playing.

Chris Mbamba who plays for Oskarshamns AIK in Sweden’s second-tier league tier side is not a well-known player but his pace in the field was one that Kenyans were longing to see in the field but that is not going to be seen anywhere.

Brian Mandela a centre back defender plays for South African side, Maritzburg United was omitted a day prior to the mentioning of the Harambee squad after he picked an ankle injury during an early morning training leaving the coach with no option but to get a replacement. H was a sure selection for the team ahead of the AFCON clashes were it not for the late injury during the training.
