Alfred Scriven has revealed that his call-up to the Harambee Stars squad which is slated to play an international friendly match against Iran on 28th March 2023 was a shock to him.
The 26-year-old striker explained how his call-up to the Kenya Men’s national team came about. Social Media was where everything happened.
“I was honestly caught by surprise. The coach sent me a message on Facebook and asked whether he could call me on WhatsApp. We spoke and he got straight to the point and asked me to come,” Scriven explained.
The attacker further stated that he stayed in Kenya for approximately 16 years, and later flew away to Norway in 2015.
It was in Norway that he joined Hallingdal for two years, playing in the third and fourth tiers of Norwegian football.
He joined Mjondalen IF in the Norwegian second division in 2018, after spending the previous two years with their fourth-level squad.
In 2019 and 2020, he was loaned to Ull/Kisa and Asker, with Kisa playing in the first division and Asker in the second.
In 2021, he joined Hodd, a second-tier club. The striker is now hoping to make an impression with the Harambee Stars.
“I have been trying to adapt since I came in. The boys have been good and kind so it has been easy to adapt.” He added
