Gor Mahia striker Francis Mustafa and Sofapaka duo of Justin Ndikumana and Omar Mousaa have been included in the Burundi 28-man provisional squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Goalkeeper Ndikumana and defender Moussa have been key members of the Sofapaka team in a season they have tried to wrestle the Kenyan Premier League title from Gor Mahia with Mustafa, despite not being an assured starter in his team coming up with important contributions in a season that saw his side compete in more than four competitions.

Apart from the trio, Burundi coach Olivier Niyungeko has included familiar faces in Vipers defender Karim Nizigiyamana whos was previously in the books of Gor Mahia and striker Abdul Fiston previously with Sofapaka.

Stoke City’s Sadio Berahino makes the cut so is Belgium-born 18-year-old striker Mohamed Amissi who plies his trade with Dutch side NEC Breda.
