Kenya is back in the competition after 15 years and this will be their sixth appearance in Africa’s top football competition, the previous five have seen them bow out at the group stages.

Speaking after the 1-0 loss to Ghana in Accra, Migne stated that he plans to use the remaining period to put a strong side that will be able to battle with the big boys at the top stage.

“Going forward, I believe we have what it takes to make a strong challenge at the Afcon, so we go back to the drawing board and continue to work.

"I hope to give a good image for Kenya during g the next Africa Cup Nations. We have about three months to go and by then I believe we will be a stronger team,” he said in a press conference.

In the 2004 edition, Kenya was grouped alongside Senegal, Mali and Burkina Faso. Stars kicked off their campaign with a 3-1 loss to Mali, they were defeated 3-0 by Senegal in the second match.
