This afternoon, Harambee Stars’ Head Coach Sebastian Migne named his 27-man Africa Cup of Nation’s (AFCON) squad that will later be trimmed to a final 23 before flying off to Egypt for the tournament.
There was, however, a huge public uproar over a few missing names on the list, including this season’s Kenya Premier League’s top scorer Allan Wanga who scored 18 goals for Kakamega Homeboyz.
Others who were dropped from the squad that’s about to depart for a 19 day training camp in France include AFC Leopards’ Whyvonne Isuza, Paul Were and Kariobangi Sharks’ Brian Bwire.
Migne’s decision didn’t seem to go down very well with Kenyan football fans with quite a number of them giving him some harsh words.
We sampled some of the comments below.
How do you explain Allan Wanga's omission from African Cup of Nations squad?

Allan Wanga, Jesse Were are not going to the AFCON, But Masoud Juma is going to limp his way in Egypt representing a Country. WOW!

Come on Man
ALLAN WANGA doesn't make the cut? 😳😳😳
So the top scorer in the Kenyan Premier League and perennial Zambian League top scorers aren't good enough to play for the Harambee stars?
I need help in reconciling this fact😕
