Ulinzi Stars striker Enosh Ochieng has spoken for the first time since being named in the Harambee Stars set up for the first time in his career.
The striker who is gunning for the Kenyan Premier League golden boot with 16 goals to his name thus far was named in the 30-man provisional squad for the 2020 CHAN qualifiers by head coach Sebastien Migne on Tuesday and according to the former Muhoroni Youth man, it is another chance to pick lessons.
“I am happy. Like any player, I have ambitions, and to be handed a national team call is not a mean feat. There is a big pool of players in KPL and I was among the players considered so that is not a mean feat. I am very positive as I head into the future, this being my first ever call up.
“It is a good learning chance for me and reflects positively on the season I have had. I try to learn something new every day and now I have a big chance. I say I am ready for this challenge and I approach it positively and with an open mind,” Enosh is quoted by the club’s website.
The striker, however, believes that he will have to lift his side in the league first and will use the motivation for the national team call up in helping his team achieve its dreams.
“It has not been a good season for us. The past few matches particularly have not been good and even as the national team call up sinks in, I know I have a duty to help my team. I can’t forget that. The motivation that comes from the call up is what I want to transfer to help the team finish strongly in the remaining matches,” he added.
Ulinzi is currently placed eighth on the log with 39 points.
