Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga has admitted the team committed grave mistakes during their Africa Cup of Nations Group C opener against Algeria.

Defensive gaffes in the opening exchange of the Sunday night, June 23, clash saw Kenya suffer a 2-0 defeat in the hands of the Desert Foxes.

Stars now face an uphill task of getting their campaign back on track as they currently sit bottom of the group that also includes Tanzania and Senegal.

However, Olunga believes the team can turn around their fortunes in the competition when they face neighbours Tanzania in their next match.

The towering forward, however, conceded the fixture scheduled for Thursday, June 27, will not be an easy one.

“Tanzania is our neighbours and it will be a difficult game. We both lost our first games and so our only option is to get the three points. We learnt from our mistakes and we will correct them in the next game,” Olunga told CAF.

Meanwhile, the outcome of the encounter between the East Africa nations could determine who qualifies for the next round from within the group.

Both Senegal and Algeria who currently sit top of the group with three points each have been tipped as clear favourites to progress.
