Football Kenya Federation has scoffed at reports doing the rounds back home that centre-half Musa Mohamed has picked an injury and will thus not feature in Thursday’s crunch game between Harambee Stars and neighbours Tanzania.
“Ignore the rumours, he’s not injured but available.Those writing such reports haven’t talked to us.Who’s given them that kind of information? Are they here with us,” an FKF official who did not wish to be named as he’s not authorized to talk to the media told Citizen Digital on Tuesday.
In fact, Mohamed was part of the squad that was taken through the paces on Tuesday night at the team’s training base, the Rosa Villa training ground here in Cairo, Egypt and will be fighting to nail down a starting role in the team.
Migne’s defence has been ravaged by injuries leaving him with thin options after Joash Onyango and Brian Mandela picked up injuries.
Mohamed partnered the young Joseph Okumu at the heart of Harambee Stars defence as Kenya fell 2-0 to Algeria in their opening game on Sunday.
The Stars must beat Tanzania on Thursday to have any realistic chance of advancing.
Meanwhile coach Sebastien Migne is penciled to hold a press conference here tomorrow to talk on the state of his team’s preparedness ahead of the match.
The briefing will begin at 12pm Kenyan time.
