Harambee Starlets coach David Ouma has handed maiden call ups to three new players in his provisional squad to face Ghana in a Tokyo 2020 Olympics third round qualifier.

Wadadia’s Monica Odato, Thika Queens’ Phiona Awino have been drafted into the team.

But the biggest surprise is the inclusion of Hannah Mbithe, who plays for Division One side Limuru Starlets. Kwale Girls’ forward Elizabeth Katungwa also makes a return to the squad.

“We have been monitoring them and they are good players who deserve a chance to show what they can do. The door is always open for anyone as long as they prove they have what it takes,” said Starlets assistant coach Jackline Akoth.
