The die is cast.Divock Origi will never don the Harambee Stars jersey,atleast not as a Kenyan international.The teenage Lille forward has been named in the  Belgium squad for the world cup in Brazil.Born in Genk of Kenyan parentage,the son to former international Mike Okoth has represented Belgium at youth level.Kenyans had their fingers crossed hoping the upcoming star would opt to play for the Harambee Stars.Its au revoir and best of luck.
