Brian Mandela also injured his knee during Monday morning’s training session and has been ruled out of the tournament, while Cliffton Miheso and Anthony Akumu have failed to make the cut.

Musa Mohamed, who picked up a knock in Kenya’s first pre-AFCON friendly match against Madagascar, has been included in the list, as has Abud Omar, who limped off late in the match.
