Gor Mahia forward Nicholas Kipkirui has been left out of coach Sebastien Migne’s 18-man squad to battle the Taifa Stars of Tanzania from 4pm Sunday in the first leg clash of the CHAN qualifier.

The tie is set for the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

However there is room for Wazito promising prodigy Musa Masika, Enosh Ochieng, Duke Abuya and Kenneth Muguna.

Gor’s centre-back Joash Onyango who failed to feature at the AFCON finals with an injury after making the squad has also been included.

In the starting team, only captain Odhiambo and Bernard Ochieng played in the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON), with Ochieng featuring as a substitute in a one match.

The return clash is set for Nairobi in a week’s time with the aggregate winner earning the nod to face Sudan in the second and final round of the qualifier. The showpiece will take place in Cameroon in January 2020.

Starting Lineup
John Oyemba (GK), Bernard Ochieng, Mike Kibwage, Joash Onyango, Cliffton Miheso, Dennis Odhiambo (C), Kenneth Muguna, Musa Masika, Whyvonne Isuza, Duke Abuya, Enosh Ochieng

Substitutes
James Saruni, David Owino, Ibrahim Shambi, Patilah Omoto, Samuel Onyango, Sydney Lokale, Piston Mutamba
