Kenya national team coach Paul Put has expressed delight in his team's improvement at the ongoing 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge tournament.

As hosts, the Harambee Stars are leading Group A with four points and will play Zanzibar on Saturday.

Despite dropping points against Libya on Tuesday, Put says he was impressed with the performance of his charges in his second match in charge of the national team.

"For me, I think we played better than the Rwanda game. Winning does not always mean that you play well,” said Put to Capital FM.

“The performance footballwise was great; we tried to play football and not kicking the ball and I think we have made some good progress.

"It was a very difficult game against Libya which is a very good team. They have quality players and noting we created more chances than them, says we were the better team.

“Unfortunately in the second half our levels dropped because this was the second match we are playing in three days."
