Harambee Stars manager Sebastien Migne has defended his charges after a disappointing loss to Tanzania, which kicked them out of the CHAN qualifiers.
The Stars settled for a 0-0 draw during the Sunday evening match, which was played at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani, before losing in a penalty shootout to their neighbors.
Speaking after the match, the Frenchman highlighted their key challenges, with lack of maturity being a decisive aspect according to the coach.
"The boys gave their best, they worked out for 15 days. The team missed some maturity as we struggled to break them down and even the chances we created, we could not use them," he said.
“It was not our day since we failed to click in the final third, it was the only problem and thus we could not score again," he added.
There's divided opinion from the fans about the Frenchman, with some calling for his exit while some asking for patience.
