Kashiwa Reysol and Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga will not be up for selection for the coming African Cup of Nations qualifier against Ghana slated for March 23.

The highly influential striker picked up a hamstring injury during Kashiwa Reysol’s 1-0 win over Albirex Niigata, ruling him out of action for the rest of the month.

As a replacement, Zesco United striker Jesse Were has been called up by coach Sebastien Migne.

Kenya will hit camp on March 17th in Nairobi.
