Baghdad Bounedjah and Riyad Mahrez gave the Desert Warriors a 2-0 win but Odinga told the players that they can make amends and pick up three points in their next Group C match against Tanzania on June 27. Tanzania lost their opening match 2-0 to Senegal.
"I want to congratulate you for putting in a good fight especially in the second half, despite not having got the result we all anticipated. It is not always about winning, but putting in a personal best effort. We still have a chance to right the wrongs in our match against Tanzania and I’m confident that we can do it,” Odinga told the players when he paid them a courtesy call.
The former Premier was in the company of Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed, Sports Principal Secretary Kirimi Kaberia and the Kenyan Ambassador to Egypt, Joff Otieno.
