Harambee Stars left for Accra, Ghana via Addis Ababa, Ethiopia early morning on Thursday.

The senior men’s national team is scheduled to face hosts Black Stars in their final Afcon 2019 Group F qualifier at Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.

Both sides have qualified for the championship set for Egypt with Kenya topping the group on 7 points followed by Ghana on 4 points.

Axed from the 22-man squad is Zesco United striker Jesse Were, who was summoned to step in for injured Japan-based goal-machine Michael Olunga.

Despite a good scoring record for club, Jesse has always struggled to replicate the same form for the club.

Libya-based Masud Juma, Kakamega Homeboyz vintage striker Allan Wanga, who is currently the leading KPL top scorer, and Sofapaka’s Pistone Mutamba are the only forwards in the team.

Head coach Sebastien Migne said they are under no pressure heading into the match.

“We are not under pressure. Even if it were a crucial qualification match, we still would have taken it easy. This will be a chance for me to gauge the players ahead of AFCON.”
