Action for Kenyan Internationals in the UK and US

Kenyan International Clarke Oduor featured for Barnsley in the first half as the team thrashed Queens Park Rangers 3-0 in a Championship match played at the Oakwell Stadium in South Yorkshire on Monday 27 October.

The left-back was rested after the break, Matty James taking his place. This is Oduor’s second straight start after the league resumed.

The team is 16th in the 24-team Championship log with seven points having played eight matches. They next face third-placed Watford on Saturday 31 October evening.

Clarke Oduor debuted for Harambee Stars in the 2-1 win over Zambia in Nairobi on Friday 9 October but missed the provisional squad for upcoming back to back AFCON 2021 qualifiers against Comoros that was named recently by new coach Jacob Ghost Mulee.
