Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Osiako played for Coast Stars aged just 16 in the 2003–04 season before later crossing over to Tusker for a season and a half.

Professional career[edit]

In December 2007, Osiako was signed by Superettan side Mjällby AIF on a two and a half-year contract.[1] Osiako's contract with Mjällby expired at the end of the 2009 season,[1] however he signed a new 2-year contract with Mjällby shortly after.[2]

Following Osiako's release from Mjällby trained with Sölvesborgs whilst exploring options in Russia[3] before having a trial with Romanian side Petrolul Ploiești.[4] In March 2012, following a successful trial, Osiako signed a two-month contract with Petrolul Ploiești.[5] After the expiration of his contract Osiako considered a new contract from Petrolul Ploiești[6] before siging for Hapoel Be'er Sheva. In August 2013, Osiako signed for Azerbaijan Premier League side Simurq from Hapoel Be'er Sheva.[7] When Osiako made his debut for Simurq on 3 August 2013, coming on as an 87th-minute substitute for Stjepan Poljak in their 2–0 victory over Ravan Baku,[8] he became only the second Kenyan to play in the Azerbaijan Premier League after Allan Wanga. Osiako scored his first goal for Simurq on 1 November 2013, in their 3–2 away defeat to Baku.[9]

International career[edit]

Osiako earned his first call up to the Kenya national football team in February 2005 while at Tusker then coached by Mohamed Kheri for a game against Botswana in a 2006 Nations Cup/World Cup qualifier

A year and a half later under caretaker coach Tom Olaba is when Osiako got his first international cap in a friendly game against Tanzania that ended in a 0–0 draw at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on 4 October 2006.

Osiako picked up his fifth cap in Luanda Angola on 10 October 2006 in a 2008 Nations Cup qualifier but after three years he was drafted for his sixth cap in a World Cup qualifier against Tunisia on Sunday 11 October 2009 where he was named Man of the match for Kenya. Tunisia won 1–0.
