Kenya National Team, Harambee Stars, coach Sébastien Migné has named the final squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Four players have been omitted from an initial 27-man squad that is in camp in Paris, France, among them Christopher Mbamba, who has failed to recover from an ankle injury he picked up in his last match before checking into camp.

Brian Mandela also injured his knee in Monday morning’s training session and has been ruled out of the tournament, while Cliffton Miheso and Anthony Akumu have failed to make the cut.

Musa Mohamed, who picked up a knock in Kenya’s first pre-AFCON friendly match against Madagascar, has been included in the list, as has Abud Omar, who limped off late in the match.

The team is getting set for their final pre-AFCON friendly match against the Democratic Republic of Congo, 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.

    The squad is good but the striking department has no depth whatsoever.
