Harambee Stars AFCON Squad: Akumu Out As Migne Submits Final List

Harambee Stars AFCON Squad

Coach of the Harambee Stars of Kenya, Sebastien Migne has dropped Zesco United midfielder Anthony Akumu from the final 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations which kicks off in Cairo.

South Africa-based defender Brian Mandela had already ruled out having picked up a knee injury on Monday, meaning Migne had three more players to trim from his initial 27-man squad that has been in France from May 30.

Winger Christopher Mbamba will have to wait longer for his international debut.

Portugal-based winger Clifton Miheso was the other casualty in Mign'e final squad although it is Akumu's axing that has shocked many fans.

The combative midfielder has played a pivotal role for his Zambian club although he has not been a regular under Migne in the four qualifiers the Frenchman was in charge.

According to Nation Sport, Mbamba picked up a knock on his ankle in training on Monday.
