Matasi is my first-choice keeper, says Migne

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Stars goalkeeper Patrick Matasi during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 5 – Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne has disclosed he will stick with Tusker FC shot stopper Patrick Matasi as his first-choice goalkeeper for Saturday’s 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Ghana at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.Matasi has been for long the first-choice custodian for the national team especially with the absence of the most experienced keeper Boniface Oluoch. The Gor Mahia custodian is currently out of the squad nursing a shoulder injury. “For the next game I have three keepers in the camp. I think it is not a secret that it will be Matasi who will be the first one on Saturday. He won CECAFA and he gave a good performance in the competition. It was also interesting in India in June, and for sure, it will be him in the first 11,” Migne said after conducting the Wednesday morning training session.Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne passes a point to his players during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.

It is good to see everyone though only for three days which is not enough to know the players but we have to adapt and try to get something,” the tactician further stated.Zesco United teammates David Owino and Jesse Were slide in for a challenge during a Harambee Stars training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.

I am confident I have a strong team,” a confident Migne offered.He has already named his final match day squad and most of the local based players, including the unattached Massoud Juma have been axed from the squad.However, impressive Bandari winger Abdallah Hassan has been handed a place in the final 24-man squad and is on line for his very first cap for the senior team.Final SquadGoalkeepers; Patrick Matasi, Farouk Shikalo, Ian Otieno.Defenders; Philemon Otieno, Jockins Atudo, Dennis Odhiambo, Joash Onyango, Benard Ochieng, Abud Omar, David Ochieng, Eric Ouma, Joseph Okumu, Musa Mohammed, David Owino.Midfielders; Francis Kahata, Abdallah Hassan, Anthony Akumu, Eric Johanna, Ismail Gonzalez, Johanna Omollo.Forwards; Piston Mutamba, Jesse Were, Michael Olunga, Ovella Ochieng.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

A5 ROAD FURORE: FIANNA FAIL DIDN’T HAVE THE MONEY WHEN THEY MADE PLEDGE, SAYS McHUGH

first_imgTHE Government has offered the northern executive Stg£50 (€60M) towards keeping the A5 project alive, Deputy Joe McHugh said today, as he revealed that the last government hadn’t set aside any cash for the scheme.Deputy McHugh was speaking as Taoiseach Enda Kenny said his government was committed to the 55 mile upgrade which would create a new link between Dublin and the North West at an estimated cost of €900M.The Taoiseach publicly pledging to spend hundreds of millions of Euros to build the stretch of motorway in May. But the finances are no longer available.Deputy McHugh blamed the last Fianna Fail government for the crisis, insisting: “This €400M that was pledged by the last government was done so in the knowledge that the money wasn’t actually in any of their development plans.“It wasn’t in any of their (Fianna Fail) estimates.”“The Taoiseach has now confirmed our commitment to £50M towards the scheme between next year and 2016.” He said the Government has asked the Stormont executive to consider what to do next, amid fears that the Belfast administration may be forced to spend their £400M pledge on other projects in case the money is taken back off them by the Westminster government.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content and Ideas including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily Sell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comA5 ROAD FURORE: FIANNA FAIL DIDN’T HAVE THE MONEY WHEN THEY MADE PLEDGE, SAYS McHUGH was last modified: November 11th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:a5 road projectdeputy joe mchughlast_img read more
