The coach said Wanyama, who was named Celtic and Scottish Premier League Young Player of the year, of is highly respected by the players and a good communicator.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian team that arrived in Nairobi this morning at 1.40am from their base in Germany has settled in at La Mada Hotel after rejecting the one that had been offered by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

The Super Eagles rejected to stay at the 680 Hotel, saying it was not the best for their comfort because of the noise around it. But the FA President Sam Nyamweya said they would inform FIFA over the issue because 680 Hotel is one of the FIFA and CAF approved hotels.

John Kairuki, the FKF Media Officer, said that they have decided to leave the Nigerians to stay where they like, while the 680 Hotel remains booked. “We are told they will have part of their contingent and journalists stay there,” added Kairuki.
