Victor Wanyama Comes Out Of International Retirement For Kenya

Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama has rescinded his decision to retire from international football and is now available for selection.

The East African nation’s Minister of Sports Ababu Namwamba confirmed Wanyama reversed his decision to quit the squad after lengthy discussions between the two on Thursday.

“I’m delighted Victor Wanyama has agreed to return fully to Harambee Stars, rescinding his earlier decision to exit the team. In our mission to rebuild our football and elevate our national teams, our elite players must be at the heart of this renaissance. Ogada Olunga too is in,” posted the CS on his official tweeter account.

Wanyama retired from international football in September last year and at that time said the stage was for the younger players to take.

The Montreal Impact defensive midfielder is one of the most-capped players in Kenyan history, with 64 appearances.

He has played in one Africa Cup of Nations since his debut 2007, scoring seven international goals during his 14-year career.

His last appearance on Harambee Stars colours was against Comoros on November 15, 2020 in their 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Kasarani.
