"I believe in my team we have enough quality. We didn't see much of it in the first match, maybe because of the quality opposition we got,but I expect the players to turn up in our match against Tanzania," he told Football Kenya Federation (FKF) in an interview ahead of the game.

Harambee Stars suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Algeria and will have no choice but to beat Taifa Stars, if they hope to stand any chance of making the knockout stage.
"When you lose the first match in this kind of competition it is important to try win the second if you are to qualify to the next round," Migne observed.
When asked earlier about what went wrong against Algeria Migne pointed out a lock of confidence and fighting spirit as the main problem.
What we need to change is our fighting spirit. We were afraid against Algeria. We refused to play," the Kenya coach noted with concern.
The Frenchman remains confident Kenya can thwart their neighbours and knows how crucial maximum points against Taifa Stars is at this point.
"We have three points to fight for and we will give it our best since the result will define our progress in the tournament," Migne said.
Victory over Emmanuel Amuneke's team for Kenya will be a major boost in their quest to progress to the knockout phase.
The match will kick off at 11pm EAT.
