Wanyama wants Harambee Stars focus

Nairobi - Kenya captain Victor Wanyama wants better focus from his teammates after conceding a late goal in a 1-1 draw with Zambia on Sunday.
Kenya was on the verge victory after a goal from Ayub Timbe in the
63rd minute, but Chipolopolo snatched a point with an 87th-minute strike
from Rainford Kalaba at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
The draw completed a disappointing run in in Group E of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers for both nations.
"We were winning...The game was good; we wanted a win, unfortunately
for us, they equalized in the dying minutes but we picked positives,"
Wanyama told Soka.
"I think they got half a chance simply because we lacked
concentration at the time they had piled pressure in our half. It's a
learning process which we shall rectify in our next matches.
"We are improving game by game which is good for the country. Doing
better will improve our rankings which again will see us moving higher
on the rankings.
"This as everyone knows will make it easy for our players to move abroad hence making the national team more competitive."
