Sebastien Migne believes that Harambee Stars can pull a surprise against Ghana but with the support of the 12th man-the Kenyan fans.

Migne is clearly aware of the danger posed by his opponents, but the Frenchman believes that the fans can push Stars to victory by filling the 60,000 sitter Kasarani Stadium on Saturday.

“I know it’s a huge opponent against us. Ghana is one of the best five teams in Africa. They beat Japan, they beat Ethiopia 5-0 it will be a huge task against us, but we will try to win and I hope fans will come out to support us,” Migne said after taking his charges through their paces on Wednesday.

Stars will miss the services of Captain Victor Wanyama, who has been ruled out of the game after the Tottenham midfielder failed to show up for the national team assignment.

Wanyama is lacking match fitness after he suffered a recurrence injury on his knee during the pre-season tour of the US with Spurs in July.  Zesco United defender David Owino is expected to lead Stars out of the tunnel in the absence of Wanyama, should he get a starting role.

Just like Wanyama, Owino is also lacking match fitness having just come back from a three-week lay-off with a knee injury.
