Akumu disappointed by failed CECAFA defence

11 December 2015, 09:41

Nairobi - Harambee Stars midfielder Anthony Teddy Akumu bemoaned his team's failure to defend the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Ethiopia.

Kenya were beaten in the quarterfinal by eventual winners Uganda after a 5-3 penalty shootout, following a goalless draw.

Akumu, who plays for Khartoum FC in Sudan, was left disappointed after the Kenyans crashed out of the tournament in the last eight.

"Personally I don't think it was a very good tournament for us; we wanted to go all the way and defend the title but that never happened and now we have to sit down and assess where we messed up, not just as a team but as a country," Akumu told Soka.

"Our next assignment is in March, in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers and we are not so well placed after the loss to Zambia but with four matches remaining I believe we can still do well if we give our best and everyone plays their role.

"We have a good team but sometimes we lack the support and motivation. As professionals we will always strive to give the best for the national team whenever called up."
