Asike laments Tanzania loss



Harambee Stars defender Eugene Asike says that they played well against Tanzania’s Taifa Stars and did not deserve to lose the game.

The Stars were beaten 1-0 by their Tanzanian counterparts in an international friendly match played at the CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza, Tanzania.

They were undone by a fifth minute Aggrey Morris goal and never recovered, to register their second defeat in a row in competitive action after losing to South Africa last month. According to Asike, Kenya had a good game and were worthy of a positive result.

“We did not deserve to lose the game because we played very well,” said Asike.

“I think that we dominated possession and had the better play, but they took an early chance and scored. From then, we had the better of the game and gave them a lot of problems, but we sadly could not score.”

“It was a game we should not have lost, but I guess that is the way the game is. “The one who takes their chances wins the game,” he reasoned.

Head coach Henri Michel is under increasing pressure to improve the team’s fortunes, and Asike is adamant that their good work will pay off soon.

“We are training well and are getting an understanding as a team,” he said. “The coach is new to the country and the team, so he needs time to stay on the job.

“He is the right man and one I feel will be good for our growth. “If we give him a chance, he will show how good he is and I am sure with patience, the results will start flowing in,” he concluded.

The Stars will next compete at the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup, which starts next week in Kampala.
