Harambee Stars defender Musa Mohammed says the national team had expected to get a positive result away against Ghana in the Afcon qualifier.

A late goal from striker Caleb Ekuban ensured that the Black Stars finished the campaign with nine points and top of Group F; that, according to Mohammed, was not the plan.

“It was a tough game; we are aware that playing a team like Ghana at their own yard is not easy.

"However, we played well, gave everything to win the match but we did not get the result we wanted, at least we now know what we are capable of,” Mohammed told Goal.

Kenya qualified for the 2019 Afcon finals alongside the Black Stars with Ethiopia failing to get past the group stage.

Harambee Stars have been seeded in Pot 4 for the draw alongside neighbors Tanzania, Mauritania, Namibia, Benin, and Madagascar and this will be their sixth appearance in the African competition.

The draw for the 2019 edition will take place on April 12 in Cairo, Egypt.
