Wanyama admits sad day for Kenyan football

04 August 2014, 12:59

Nairobi - Victor Wanyama admitted it was a "bad day" for Kenyan football after they saw their AFCON qualifying campaign ended on Sunday.

The Harambee Stars hosted their continental rivals at the Nyayo National Stadium trailing by a goal from the first leg, but were unable to find a way through in front of their home fans as Sunday's return fixture ended 0-0.

Speaking after the goalless draw, a dejected Wanyama said: "Today (Sunday) was a bad day for us; we have let our fans and Kenyans at large down. We played a good game but luck was not on our side because we created many chances."

Dennis Oliech, who missed a golden chance to force extra time in the closing stages in Nairobi, echoed his team-mate's sentiments, adding: "We have let Kenyans down we are sorry.

"We now have to go back to the drawing board and hope to qualify in the next competition, but it's sad we have to wait for two years."
