Kenya will face Algeria in their Group C opener at the June 30 Stadium on June 23, before playing neighbours Tanzania on June 27

Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne named his final squad of 23 players for the Africa Cup of Nations finals to be held in Egypt on Tuesday.

Four players, among them Anthony Akumu, Christopher Mbamba, Brian Mandela and Clifton Miheso, were the main casualties after they were axed from the squad which is currently pitching camp in France ahead of the tournament.

Mbamba was overlooked after he failed to recover from an ankle injury he picked up in his last match before checking into camp. Mandela, meanwhile, injured his knee during Monday’s training session and was ruled out as a result.

However, defender Musa Mohamed, who sustained a knock in Kenya’s first pre-Afcon friendly match against Madagascar, has been included in the list, same as Abud Omar, who limped off late in the encounter.

Kenya will play their second friendly, against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Madrid on June 15, before leaving for Egypt four days later.

They will open Group C's campaign with a match against Algeria on June 23 before playing neighbours Tanzania on June 27, and finish the preliminary stage with a match against Senegal on July 1.

Below, Goal parades the players coach Migne has kept trust in and believes they will do Kenyans proud.
