Kenya national team coach Sebastien Migne has expressed delight after bagging his first win as the Harambee Stars’ boss.
Migne picked up his first win as Kenya’s coach after beating Equatorial Guinea 1-0 in a friendly match played in Machakos on Monday evening.
The goal came through Piston Mutamba in the 73rd minute as Stars recovered from Friday’s 1-0 loss to Swaziland.
Although the game against the Nzalang Nacional was tougher than the one against Isihlangu Semnikati, Migne’s charges stepped up.
Moreover, the boss made four changes to the team as he gave opportunities to more players, with Mutamba making his senior team debut.
Speaking after the match, the French manager was excited with the result, but noted that there is more work to be done.
“I have worked with local players only but at least there is improvement though there is a lot to do. We cannot celebrate this win but take the positives," he said after the match.
“I am happy with how we played. Big improvement from the game against Swaziland and I am very happy we kept a clean sheet because it was a target.”
The East Africans will now prepare to face the Black Stars of Ghana in their CAF African Cup of Nations Qualifiers in September.
In their opening clash in June last year, Kenya lost 2-1 to Sierra Leone and now sit third in the group with zero points together with Ethiopia.
