Kenya’s Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne has summoned a 21-member team to camp Saturday here for preparations of their scheduled international friendlies.
Albania based duo Musa Mohammed and Erick Ouma have made the cut having just returned home after their season ended.
Football Kenya Federation said in a statement on Saturday that the coach will only have one day training session with the players before releasing them back to their clubs.
“Coach Migne and his assistant Nicolas Bourriquet will hold two training sessions on Tuesday. He will have one day training to gauge who are fit for the assignment,” FKF said.
Musa terminated his stay with Albanian giants KF Tirana while Ouma has been playing with second tier side KS Kastrioti Kruje, but will be moving to play for Tirana in the Albanian capital.
Migne will also assess among Kenya’s U-23 players like David Owino and Pistone Mutamba. Notable inclusions in the team are Yussuf Mainge and Marvin Onyango, who turn out for the national U-20 team.
FKF Chairman Nick Mwendwa said they are lining up three international friendly matches for Harambee Stars to help coach Migne gauge his side.
He said the teams to play Kenya will be released on a later date once they have been confirmed.
Kenya is preparing for the Africa Nations Cup group D matches where they are pooled alongside Ghana, Ethiopia and Sierra Leone.
Kenya lost the opening round match 2-1 to Sierra Leone in Freetown last year and the qualification campaign resumes in September with a match against Ghana in Nairobi.
Only the winner of each group will sail through to the finals in 2019 to be played in Cameroon.
Kenya last competed at this stage of the tournament in 2004 in Tunisia. Migne has his task cut out to help Harambee Stars return to the premier football competition in the continent. He was signed last month replacing Belgian Paul Put on a three year contract. Enditem
