Michel names CHAN squad
Harambee Stars coach Henri Michel has named a 23-man squad that will represent Kenya in the upcoming CHAN qualifiers against Burundi.
The former French international decided to not participate in the upcoming Cecafa Tusker Cup in Kampala and instead focus on the match against Burundi.
The team is expected to report to camp on December 8, a day before the regional tournament comes to a close.
Kenya’s U23 Coach James Nandwa will lead out the team that is comprised on local-based players when Kenya open the tournament against rivals Uganda.
The last time the two sides met, the match ended on a barren draw at Namboole Stadium.
