Migne: Not a perfect show but we gave our best

The mood has brightened and spirits are once again high at the Kenya national team, Harambee Stars camp at the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON), following the Thursday 27 June win over Tanzania, and head coach Sebastien Migne will be hoping to finish off with a fair result when the team takes on Senegal in their last Group C game.

Twice in the match, Kenya had to come from behind to level scores before hitting a third to bag a 3 – 2 win and though the coach feels it wasn’t the best performance he had expected, he is happy to take three goals and three points.

Important win

The win at the June 30 Stadium in Cairo, was the second for Kenya at AFCON finals but the first meaningful win, as it could go a long way in aiding the team advance to the second round.

“I am really happy because the players wrote a new story of Kenyan football. It is the first AFCON win in a game with stake and now we can dream of something fantastic.

Team spirit

“I don’t know if this win will be enough for us to qualify but I believe Kenyans can be proud because their players showed their quality and team spirit. With this kind of spirit, everything is possible.

“It was not perfect of course, but we gave our best,” he said.

Ahead of the third game, both Kenya and Senegal have three points. The last time Kenya played at AFCON before the current tournament, Stars were in the same group as Senegal, and the west Africans picked a 3 – 0 win.
