Harambee Stars trolled for losing to tiny Swaziland

Kenyan fans have expressed their frustrations after the national football team suffered defeat to lowly Swaziland in an international friendly on Friday in Machakos.

Harambee Stars lost 1-0 to Shilangi Semnikati in a contest that marked Frenchman Sebastien Migne’s debut as the national team head coach.

Mandia Palma scored the lone goal of this match on 77 minutes for the visitors who are used the match as a build up fixture ahead of the Cosafa Cup in South Africa.

Palma turned swiftly in the box and unleashed a fierce shot that beat Stars custodian Boniface Oluoch to the disappointment of the hundreds of fans in attendance, including Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Achesa and FKF president Nick Mwendwa.


This is Harambee Stars’ third consecutive winless game following another loss against Central Africa Republic and draw with Comoros in international friendlies played in Morocco in March.

Stars will play another friendly match against Equatorial Guinea in Machakos on Monday.

Immediately after the game, scores of fans vented out on Twitter, insisting that the national team has become a big disappointment.
