Africa Kenya: Mariga has been called back

Macdonald Mariga who is Inter-Milan midfielder made a return to the national team Harambee Stars after a year’s absence.

Mariga has been called-up for next month’s international friendly match against Libya in Tunisia. The match will be played on February 6, a day that has been set aside by world governing body Fifa for international friendly matches.

Mariga has not played for Stars since he declined to feature in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Togo last year after a disagreement over refunds with the Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

After that he suffered a near career threatening injury that kept him out of action for eight months and has just recovered though he is still struggling to get playing time at the Italian giants.

Kenya has improved seven places in the latest Fifa rankings released this week.

The country is currently placed in position 127 up from position 134 they occupied last month.

Kenya has also improved on their African rankings where they are now placed at position 38 up from 39th last month.
