Kenya National Football team coach Sébastien Migné has named the final 22-man squad ahead of the final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ghana on Saturday in Accra.
Migné was boosted by the arrival of Tottenham star and captain Victor Wanyama, Erick Johanna, Erick ‘Marcelo’ Ouma, Ismail Gonzalez and Paul Were.
But the French trainer has been faced with queries from a section of the media following his decision to snub Zambia-based striker Jesse Were.
Despite his incredible form both in the Zambian league and the continental matches, Stars coach Sebastien Migne seemed to have other plans upfront.
The 29-year-old was left out in the two-leg qualifier against Ethiopia October last year.
Were opened the scoring for ZESCO United in their 2-1 victory over Asante Kotoko in the CAF Confederation Cup over the weekend.
Meanwhile, the team is expected to arrive in Ghana today ahead of the dead-rubber clash.
Both teams have already qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations slated for June in Egypt. The game will only be used to determine the winner of the group.
Below is the squad;
Goalkeepers: Patrick Matasi (St Georges, Ethiopia), Farouk Shikalo (Bandari), John Oyemba (Kariobangi Sharks)
Defenders: Erick “Marcelo” Ouma (Vasalund, Sweden), Musa Mohammed (Nkana FC, Zambia), David Owino (Zesco, Zambia), Brian Mandela (Maritzburg, South Africa), Philemon Otieno (Gor Mahia, Kenya), Benard Ochieng (Vihiga United, Kenya), Joash Onyango (Gor Mahia, Kenya)
Midfielders: Erick Johanna (IF Brommapojkarna, Sweden), Johanna Omollo (Cercle Brugge, Belgium), Ismael Gonzales (UD Las Palmas B, Spain), Paul Were (Trikala, Greece), Victor Wanyama (Tottenham Hotspurs, England), Francis Kahata (Gor Mahia, Kenya), Christopher Tangen Mbamba (Oskarshamns, Sweden), Dennis Odhiambo (Sofapaka, Kenya), Anthony Akumu (Zesco, Zambia)
Forwards: Allan Wanga (Kakamega Homeboyz), Pistone Mutamba (Sofapaka), Masud Juma (Al Nassr, Libya)
The match is scheduled for Saturday, March 23, 2019, at the Accra Sports Stadium.Read Full Story
