The Simbas have made six changes to the squad that started Tuesday’s 31-10 loss to Russia as they brace for their final Regal Hotels Cup of Nations encounter against hosts Hong Kong at 12.00pm EAT (5.00pm HKT) on Saturday 18 November.
Sam Onsomu, Nato Simiyu, George Nyambua and David Ambunya who all came on from the bench are handed starts alongside Jacob Ojee and Tony Onyango who were rested on Tuesday. There is also a return for Eric Kerre who has shrugged off the effects of a knock in the opening fixture against Chile to start this tie off the bench.
Martin Owilah, deployed at openside against Russia starts this tie at number eight in the absence of Joshua Chisanga with Davis Chenge slotting into the openside flank.
Peter Kilonzo, Joshua Chisanga and Alex Olaba are rested.
