Harambee Stars coach Sébastien Migne has named a 24-man provisional squad for Kenya’s final Africa Cup of Nations Qualifying match against Ghana on March 23 in Accra.
Harambee Stars are set to hit camp on March 17, 2019, in Nairobi ahead of the Ghana match which has been slated for March 23, 2019, in Accra.
Former Kariobangi Sharks star Masud Juma recently signed for Libyan side Al Nasr made a return to the team.
Harambee Stars’ squad also features two debutants, David Sessay, and Christopher Mbamba, who play their trade in England and Sweden respectively.
Duke Abuya (Kariobangi Sharks) and Faruk Shikalo (Bandari) have also gotten the coach’s nod.
Captain Victor Wanyama returns to the squad despite consistent injuries which have reduced on his playing time at Tottenham Hotspur this season.
Japan-based Micheal Olunga and Zambian trio of David Owino, Musa Mohammed and Anthony Akumu have also been convened to complete the squad.
Notable absentees include the injured Ayub Timbe, in-form Jesse Were and David ‘Cheche’ Ochieng who currently is unattached.
This is the final competitive match for Harambee Stars before the Nations Cup, a win or draw will guarantee top spot in Group ‘F’.
The group consists of four teams: Ghana, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, and Kenya
On 30 November 2018, the CAF decided to disqualify Sierra Leone from the qualifiers, and all their matches were annulled, due to FIFA’s suspension of the Sierra Leone Football Association on 5 October 2018
