The Kenyan side, led by captain Victor Wanyama, fell 2-1 to hosts Leone Stars in a Afcon qualifying match on Saturday

Harambee Stars assistant coach Frank Ouna says the Siaka Stevens Stadium's pitch was a let down to his team.

The Kenyan side, led by captain Victor Wanyama, fell 2-1 to the hosts Leone Stars, who scored their goals courtesy of Julius Wobay and Umaru Bangura, with the visitors getting their consolation through Michael Olunga's spectacular free-kick.

The former Gor Mahia tactician told the local website site in a post match interview that the pitch was the main undoing. "It was tough because we played in unplayable pitch; the pitch is not good to play football. But congratulations to the home team, it has managed to win, but our focus is now on the forthcoming match."

Kenya has until March next year when they willplay host Ghana's Black Stars, who are set to play Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia on Sunday. Before that, the East African side will host Chan in January next year.
