Kenya coach Sebastien Migne has named a 25-man home based squad for next month’s final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ghana.

But the Frenchman has snubbed veteran Gor Mahia striker and Kenya’s all time top scorer Dennis Oliech.

However, Migne has opted for youthful strikers like Allan Wanga, Sydney Lokale, David Juma and Piston Mutamba.

Four Mathare United players- Roy Okal, Andrew Juma, David Owino and Cliff Nyakeya have been invited.

Gor Mahia trio Philemon Otieno, Francis Kahata and Joash Onyango retained their places but two of their outstanding players this season Nicholas Kipkirui and Kenneth Muguna were excluded.

Migne will work with this provisional squad for their African Nations Championships (CHAN) qualifier against Burundi on a yet-to-be-named date.

Kenya squad:

Goalkeepers: Brian Bwire(Kariobangi Sharks), John Oyemba (Kariobangi Sharks), Farouk Shikalo (Bandari); Defenders: Andrew Juma (Mathare United), David Owino (Mathare United), Philemon Otieno (Gor Mahia), Joash Onyango (Gor Mahia), Elvis Nandwa (Ulinzi Stars), Michael Kibwage (KCB), Bernard Ochieng (Vihiga United);

Midfielders: Francis Kahata (Gor Mahia), James Mazembe (Kariobangi Sharks), Duke Abuya (Kariobangi Sharks), Roy Okal (Mathare United), Cliff Nyakeya (Mathare United), John Avire (Sofapaka), Dennis Odhiambo (Sofapaka), Teddy Osok (Wazito FC), Whyonne Isuza (AFC Leopards), Jafari Owiti (AFC Leopards), Abdallah Hassan (Bandari);

Forwards: Sydney Lokale (Kariobangi Sharks), Piston Mutamba (Sofapaka), Allan Wanga (Kakamega HomeBoyz) and David Juma(Tusker).
