Kenya national team coach Paul Put says the Harambee Stars are yet to play the brand of football he wants, but accepts that he was pleased with their performance in a 2-0 win over Rwanda.

Kenya bagged a comfortable win over the Amavubi on Sunday in their opening 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup, but Put wants more from his troops.

Put has been in charge for a week and said more still needs to be done technically and tactically, yet he believes it will be easy to work considering the quality at his disposal.

"This is not my kind of football we are bringing today. We have to do a lot of work; we need to improve the players,” said Put to Capital Sport.

“They have talent and quality but there is still a long way to go. But I must say congratulations to the players for the victory.

"What's important is that it is the first game and it was crucial to get a good result. Rwanda have quality but the will and the motivation of the players was great.

“It was what we have been asking of them in training the whole week. They have shown they are willing to play as a team."
