A Nicholas Opoku first half own goal saw the Black Stars succumb to their first defeat of the series in Group F.
The matchday two result leaves Kwesi Appiah's outfit tied on three points with the Harambee Stars and Sierra Leone ahead of the other group game between the Leone Stars and bottom-placed Ethiopia on Sunday.
Ghanaians, predictably disappointed by Saturday's result, have taken to social media to express their frustrations.
Below are some reactions:
Disjointed, inept, lethargic, classles. Poorest Black Stars display since Ghana vs Uganda in 2014.— Fentuo Tahiru Fentuo (@Fentuo) 8 septembre 2018
Appiah has to do better. His team selection and substitution today were very questionable.
Kwesi Appiah took charge of his 11th game as head coach of Ghana 🇬🇭Black Stars today vs Kenya 🇰🇪 after his re-appointment in April 2017.— Nana Owusu (@AlfOwusu) 8 septembre 2018
Goals scored: 19

The Black Stars loss to Kenya is no news.— A.M. Elikplim (@mcbenedict7) 8 septembre 2018
It's only to those who want to play the ostrich game.
In fact, nothing much to expect from a coach like Kwesi Appiah.
There's no seriousness from the technical bench down to the playing body.
Lol there is no Jordan Ayew to be blamed for the black stars losing the match. Kwesi Appiah make hot 😂— Junior 🇬🇭® (@kmtakyi) 8 septembre 2018
