Matasi shine as Kenya lose to Senegal

By KASS Online Team
Kenya’s hopes of qualifying to the round of 16 in the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) championships in Egypt were dimmed yesterday after losing to Senegal in 3-0.
Kenya put up a brave fight in the first half before Ismaila Saar scored and Sadio Mane sealed Kenya’s fate with two goals, one from a penalty. He had earlier however lost a chance when Kenyan goal keeper Patrick Matasi saved a penalty – giving Kenya hope.
Kenya now remains third in group C with three points and their only hope of making it into the round of 16 is if results from Group E and F go in their favor and they remain ranked as one of the best four third placed teams.
Currently, Kenya is ranked fourth in that mini-table, just below South Africa on goal difference.
