Anthony ‘Teddy’ Akumu is the top omission as coach Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne named his final 23-man squad for the 2019 African Cup of Nations finals.

Among the four axed players from the initial 27-man provisional list is 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 yesterday’s morning training session and has been ruled out of the tournament. Cliffton Miheso also 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 Aboud 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 this Saturday in Madrid, Spain.

Stars will then jet into Egypt on June 19, 2019, five days before their opening match of the tournament against Algeria.
