The List is finally Out!! Harambee Stars Head Coach Sebastien Migne has revealed a 23-man list of players that will carry Kenya’s hopes at the African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Clifton Miheso and Teddy Akumu are among those ommitted from the final squad while Brian Mandela could not realize his AFCON dreams after he suffered a knee injury during the Monday training session.
Christopher Mbamba is another player left out of the final list due to an injury he picked up in his last match before checking into camp.
Despite suffering a knock during Kenya’s friendly against Madagascar, Defender Musa Mohammed has made the cut.
Under Fire Striker Abud Omar will also board the plane to Egypt after making it to Migne’s final list. This is despite limping off during Kenya’s friendly against Madagascar.
Before leaving for Egypt, Harambee Stars will take on the Democratic Republic of Congo in a friendly match set to be played on Saturday, June 15, 2019, in Madrid, Spain.
Stars will then jet into Egypt on June 19, 2019, five days before their opening match of the tournament against Algeria.
