The Kenya U17 national team’s quest for a place in the 2017 Africa U17 Championships in Madagascar came tumbling down after a 1 – 9 aggregate loss to Cameroon in the second round of the qualifiers.
The team suffered a 0 – 7 loss away in the first leg and the second leg in Nairobi ended 2 – 1 in favor of Cameroon, completing a two legged rout but in the wake of the home loss in the second leg, head coach Andreas Spiers picked a few positives.
The German noted that the boys showed lots of maturity against a stronger side given the team is still new and has not played a lot together.
“We did not win but I take heart from the team’s performance; I am happy with the way they played against a stronger team and given that we have not been together for so long, it was an impressive performance.
“We want to create a good understanding in the team because that is what will deliver better results. If we play together for longer, we will get to know each other and we will be able to post good results,” he said.
