Coach Francis Kimanzi will on Wednesday name Harambee Stars full squad for Saturday’s 2014 World Cup qualifying match against Malawi.

Kimanzi has kept postponing naming his squad for the duel, partly so due to uncertainty surrounding the availability of some of the top rated players in the team.

But following Football Kenya Federation’s revelation that inspirational skipper Dennis Oliech has agreed to don the national colours again, calm has been restored to the team.

Oliech return to the fold followed behind the scenes consultations between the federation officials and the player’s family members.

Apart from Oliech, other foreign-based players who have reported to camp are veteran midfielder Titus Mulama, who turns out for Congolese side St.Elloi Lupopo, former Mathare United attacking midfielder Kevin Kimani and Patrick Osiako of Romanian side Petroulul Ploiesti.

The team will switch its training base also on wednesday from the Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS) to the Moi International Sports Centre (MISC), Kasarani, the venue of Saturday’s match.

Malawi will jet into the country on Wednesday for the match. The Flames have been in Tanzania since last week for a series of friendly matches in preparation for Saturday’s match.

 Meanwhile, fans seems to prefer the lower tier tickets which are retailing for Ksh.500 shunning the high priced VIP(2000) and the VVIP tickets going for Ksh.3000.

 According to the official ticket agents KAPS they anticipate selling out all the lower tier tickets of the total 48 000 available by Friday, though fans have up to noon of the match day to but their tickets which will not be sold at the venue then.

Besides the online sales on and fans are able to buy tickets from KAPS outlets at Yaya Center, Capital Center Sarit Center Westgate,Nyayo National Stadium and Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.
