Gor Mahia’s Karim Nizigiyimana missing as Burundi summon 32 for Niger


The reigning Kenyan premier league defender Karim Nizigiyimana of Gor Mahia has been omitted from Burundi “Swallows” squad for Niger in the last round of the AFCON 2017 qualifiers in Niamey.

Coach Niyungeko Alian Oliver’s team for assignment is already out with the gifted full back loudly missing.

Gor Mahia have struggled to match their 2015 splendid season, with some players including Karim also failing to beat high expectations. K’Ogalo are currently trailing Tusker in the title race by a margin of seven points with a few fixtures to go.

Two players; Harerimana Rashid and Nimubona Vianney have been lined up to fight for the right full back role.

Fiston Abdul Razak (Bloemfontein Celtic,South Africa) , with five goals in the qualifiers, Laudit Mavugo who currently signed for Simba SC from Vital’O and Papy Faty (Bidvest Wits, South Africa) are among notable faces in the list.
