Monday, June 24, 2019 – Kenya’s national football team, Harambee Stars, kicked off their 2019 African Cup of Nations campaign on Sunday night, with a disappointing 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Desert Warriors of Algeria.
The excitement among Kenyans ahead of the match after a 15-year absence from the tournament was palpable.
However, the team looked disjointed, clueless and hapless and could have lost by more goals.
Harambee Stars now have a mountain to climb in their next two matches against Senegal and neighbors Tanzania if they hope to avoid an early exit.
As Kenyans continue to express their disappointment, Canadian based vocal lawyer, Miguna Miguna, has said that Harambee Stars had no chance against Algeria.
According to Miguna, victory in soccer requires brain work, strategy and coordination of tactics which is not possible in ‘despotic’ states.
