AFCON 2017: Mauritius caretaker coach Alain Happe names five foreign-based players in squad to face Ghana
Mauritius stop-gap coach Alain Happe has named an 18-man squad to face Ghana on Sunday in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Accra.
The Frenchman, who replaced compatriot Didier Six, has augmented his squad with five foreign-based players (Kevin Bru (England), Jonathan Bru (Portugal), Jonathan Justin (France), Andy Sophie (La RÃ©union) and Laurent Coralie (Australia).
The Islanders will touch down in the Ghanaian capital on Wednesday night.
Mauritius hope to cause an upset after a calamitous campaign at the just concluded 2015 COSAFA Cup tournament in South Africa.
Club M lost to 2-0 each to Zimbabwe and Namibia respectively in the Group stage but recovered to nail Seychelles 1-0.
Mauritius have never qualified for the finals of the Nations Cup and must see how to outsmart Mauritania and Rwanda in the Group.
