Kenya challenges CAF decision to bar
three players from under 17 qualifiers

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya has challenged the decision to expel three of the country’s players from the ongoing Confederation of African Football (CAF) AFCON Under 17 qualifiers in Tanzania after allegations emerged that the players are over the age limit.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Head of Communications and Public Relations, Barry Otieno said on Saturday evening that the local governing body has performed its due diligence in the selection of the team.

Maxwell Mulili, Lesley Otieno Owino and Abdulmalik Hussein Abdalla are the three players accused by CAF of being over-age and therefore, been barred from taking part at the qualifiers.

“In total, 30 players were subjected to the mandatory tests, with the same confirming that only two were not in the required age bracket,” Otieno said in a statement.

“The two were subsequently dropped from the squad prior to the team leaving for Tanzania, thus giving the federation no reason to doubt the eligibility of the remaining 28, of which 18 were selected to represent the country in the U-17 AFCON qualifiers,” Otieno added.

The FKF has subsequently written to CAF and the hospital that conducted the MRI in Nairobi to establish the cause of discrepancies in the test results.
