Kenya national team head coach Sebastian Migne has expressed his disappointment with his side’s first-half display in the 2-0 defeat to Algeria in Cairo Egypt on Sunday evening.

The Desert Warriors picked three vital points courtesy of first half goals from  Baghdad Bounedjah and Riyad Mahrez. Despite a spirited second half, Stars failed to salvage even a point ending their frustrating afternoon without a shot on target.

The first half was a real nightmare to Harambee Stars as the North African team produced a near master class, holding the ball superbly and building up well. Kenyan players looked lost in the entire first half as the North Africans ran the show.

In an interview, the French coach spoke of his disappointment at Stars first half show. “We were afraid. I accept to lose but not this way. I accept to lose but not the way we played in the first half,” said Migne.

However, Migne believes that their Thursday match with Tanzania will be easier as compared to the Algerian one. “We will want to win against Tanzania. It will not be easy, but easier than Algeria’s game,” said the Frenchman.

The former Congo coach has all to do against a Tanzania side that will equally be looking to bounce back after going down to Senegal on Sunday afternoon.
