Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne is set to name his preliminary squad for the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday.

There have been reports that the team has already been named, which the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has denied, saying everything will be done next week.

Communications Officer Barry Otieno says coach Migne is finalizing his squad and it will be made public a few days from now.

“I have seen certain information regarding the squad making rounds, but I can reveal that is not the correct information. Coach Migne will name his team on Tuesday, actually, it will be both Afcon and Chan squads, meaning it will be about 60 players,” Otieno told Goal.

“Do not be misled by a few individuals who have their own agenda. We will do everything as planned.”

Harambee Stars are scheduled to depart for Paris on May 31, where they are set to pitch camp for three weeks before they proceed to Cairo on June 19.

While in France, the team has lined up two friendly matches against Madagascar and Gambia on June 7 and 15 respectively.

Kenya have been drawn in Group C at the Africa Cup of Nations, which kicks off on June 21.

The Harambee Stars will begin their Afcon campaign against Algeria, before meeting Tanzania and Senegal as they look to reach the knockout stages.
