Migne names two ‘unknowns’ for Ghana tie

Crawley Town 20-year old defender David Sessay goes down under a challenge during a friendly match against Ipswich

NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 28 – Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne has named two ‘unknowns’ in Kenya’s 24-man provisional squad to play Ghana away in the final 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier in March.

The tactician has named 20-year old defender David Sessay who turns out for English fourth tier side Crawley Town and midfielder Christopher Tangen Mbamba who plays in Sweden for third tier side Oskarshamns.

Sessay was released by Watford Academy last year and signed for Crawley on a two year contract that expires next year August.

Also earning a slot in the team is Mathare United midfielder Cliff Nyakeya as well as Kariobangi Sharks forward Duke Abuya.

There is also a return for winger Clifton Miheso into the squad with the player having sealed a move to Portugal’s second tier where he currently features for Club Olimpico Montijo.

Migne has further named five players on a reserve list in case any of the first team players get injured during training.

Harambee Stars who have already qualified for the Cup of Nations to be hosted in Egypt, will hope to finish off the qualification campaign on a high with victory or a point away to the Black Stars set to assure the team of a top of the table finish.
