The fate of Kenya’s Harambee Stars now lies in the hands of God. This is according to head coach Sebastien Migne.

Kenya went down 3-0 to the Terenga Lions of Senegal, a loss that all but put the team’s chances of qualification to the knockout phase in doubt.

Kenya now awaits to see if they can progress as one of the best third-placed teams. This will only be confirmed after the last round of group matches on Tuesday.

Kenya’s loss to Senegal means that the Terenga Lions finish second behind Algeria and will face Uganda.

Ahead of the games that will all but determine Kenya’s fate, Coach Sebastien Migne is now banking on some help from God.

The coach has however admitted that as a team, they have got some valuable lessons in the tournament.

He has also said that he is disappointed with yesternight’s results since his team put in a great display especially in the first one hour before things went south.

“We must now wait for the results of tomorrow [Tuesday] and await some help from God, we will see, but we learn a lot during this competition,” He Said.

“I am very disappointed for my boys because during one hour we created some problems some difficulties at least for the Senegalese team. We were not so far but not so close, unfortunately,” he added.

Migne has blamed Kenya’s loss to the loss of concentration by his players, something that enabled the Senegalese to score three goals in the second half.

“In the high level, when you commit a mistake, you pay the penalty immediately, and when you are playing against Senegal it’s a very high level,” Migne continued.

“When you commit an error you know it will be difficult. We took the decision to hold this score. Just before holding this score, we had a moment when the Senegalese goalkeeper came out, I have nothing to complain about.

“Maybe the step was too high, we held on for an hour, an hour and a half was too much. We had two penalties, one red card, it becomes complicated, even if for the first penalty it becomes complicated.

“Against this kind of opponent, everything can go faster, after one hour it can be difficult. I think if you can’t continue 10 minutes more you can cause trouble and create some weakness, but… against this kind of team one mistake you will see the punishment.”
