Fresh injury concern has hit the Harambee Stars camp ahead of their Algeria opener, with defender Joash Onyango ruled out by a toe injury.
Onyango is reportedly nursing the injury he suffered during a training session on Saturday and his exclusion from the squad is a big blow to head coach Sebastien Migne.
“He was involved in a collision during a training session on Saturday night and he suffered a toe injury,” Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa told Goal from Egypt.
“Onyango will now miss the first two matches against Algeria and Tanzania but could be fit to face Senegal in the final fixture. It is a blow for the team since we had already lost Brian Mandela.”
Migne already has to contend with the absence of centre-back Brian Mandela who injured his knee while in France. Musa Mohamed is another defender whose fitness is awaiting late confirmation after he also suffered a knock in France.
Migne has only been left with three fit centre backs in Zesco United's David Owino, Real Monarch's Joseph Okumu and Bernard Ochieng of Vihiga United.
