Harambee Starlets head coach David Ouma has called on the players to apply the lessons learnt from the Olympic qualifiers at the Cecafa Women's Championship.

Kenya were bundled out by Zambia in the fourth round on Monday.

The Cecafa Championship will be held starting from November 16 at the Chamazi Complex but Kenya will play their first match a day later against Ethiopia. 

“We didn’t get the results we anticipated in the Olympic Qualifiers but nonetheless, the girls gave a good account of themselves and I must say I am proud of them,” Ouma told the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president.

“There are a lot of positives to be picked and it’s now time to apply the lessons learnt.”

Harambee Starlets are in Group B alongside Uganda, Ethiopia and Djibouti while Group A consists of Tanzania, Burundi, Zanzibar and South Sudan.

The top two teams will advance to the semi-finals which are expected to be played on November 23.

The third-placed playoff and the final are on November 25.
