Williamson happy with Harambee Stars despite losses

17 October 2014, 19:25

Nairobi - Bobby Williamson admits Kenya were lacking in certain areas of their play against Morocco, but in the end was proud of their performance.

The Harambee Stars travelled to Marrakech in midweek for a friendly international, but returned home with their tails between their legs after a late collapse saw them lose 3-0.

Williamson had initially been critical of his side's defending, having conceded all their goals in the closing stages, but after some reflection he was able to take some positives from the tie.

"I'm proud of my players. They played very well especially in the first half where they were able to hold their hosts to a barren draw," the Scotsman said.

"We lacked concentration in the last quarter of an hour where they scored three quick goals which caught us by surprise. They took advantage of the few mistakes we made and punished us.

"Football is not about making news and even if it were, we also made news for conceding three goals within a span of 10 minutes. Our boys played very well and only luck eluded them.

"It was a learning experience for our youthful players who have taken the defeat positively."
