Coach Sebastien Migne has been handed a nasty headache hours to the pivotal clash with Algeria as defensive stalwart Joash Onyango is set to miss the clash with an ankle injury.

Onyango who has been key to Migne’s plans sprained his ankle last evening and will thus play no role in the 11pm clash with the Desert Foxes.

He adds to the growing injury list that also includes fellow defender Brian Mandela. Mandela is recovering from a surgery having gone under the knife in Paris, France. Mandela picked up the injury at the team’s training camp early last week in the French capital.

“Yes, its true he’s injured, he has an ankle injury.We will make this communication official once the squad is released,” FKF Media Officer Ken Okaka said.

His absence is a blow to Migne who is now forced to rejig his defence. David ‘Calabar’ Owino, a utility defender,  youngster Joseph Okumu and Bernard Ochieng could be called upon as a result of the developments, with Philemon Otieno, Musa Mohamed, Eric ‘Marcelo’ Ouma and Aboud Omar the other defenders in the team.
