Kenyan Star Oliech’s Africa Cup of Nations Dream Shattered

Dennis  Oliech, who started alongside Jacques Tuyisenge as lead strikers in Hasan Oktay's squad, collided mid-air with Western Stima's Junior Mukhisa in the 60th minute, lost his balance and landed awkwardly on his left arm and fractured it. He'll miss specialised training that will take place in France ahead of the high stakes continental competition.
