Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has been named in the Kenyan squad to face Ghana in their Afcon qualifier in October.


Wanyama who is the captain for the Hamrabee of Kenya missed their 1-0 victory over Ghana in Nairobi earlier this month due to injury.

 Wanyama only recently returned to full training with Tottenham and has had a few minutes of competitive action after recovering from a knee injury.



"I hope Wanyama will make it for the two games this time," Kenya coach Migne said in Nairobi on Saturday.

The Harambee Stars will first travel to Bahir Dar to face Ethiopia on 10 October, before hosting the return match on 14 October in Nairobi.

Kenya are second in Group F behind Ghana, with all four teams on three points each.
