Harambee Stars coach Sebastian Migne has shockingly dropped Kenya Premier League topscorer Allan Wanga from his 2019 Africa Cup of Nations squad.

The gaffer also left out AFC Leopards midfielder Whyvonee Isuza and Kariobangi Sharks goalkeeper Brian Bwire from the 27-man squad heading to France for a three-week boot camp.

“I am picking the best possible squad and most of the times it provides a headache,” explained Migne.

“I am the coach and have to think about today and tomorrow. Every squad has surprises and for me John Avire is the surprise. I am looking forward to working with him and also Masoud Juma for the strikers positions because they have interesting quality.”

Football Kenya Federation President, Nick Mwendwa believes the Harambee stars are well prepared for the tournament;

“The Africa Cup of Nations is 25 days away but for us the tournament starts now with a trip to France,” Nick Mwendwa said.

“We have prepared very well and are going to try our best and get out of the group.”

Kenya are in Group C of the AFCON where they play Senegal, Algeria and Tanzania.
