This was his first time to be summoned on the National team but he failed to convince the coach when he came on to replace Patrick Kaddu in the 55th minute in a goalless draw against Turkmenistan.

KCCA FC midfielder Ibrahim Saddam Juma and Ethiopia based Krisestom Ntambi also failed to make the cut. None of these two played a minute in a game against Turkmenistan.
