Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne has conceded it will be difficult for his team to seal a last 16 spot in the Africa Cup of Nations after their Group C defeat to Senegal.

Sadio Mane's second-half brace and Ismaila Sarr's thunderbolt is all Senegal needed to sink Harambee Stars in the two teams' last group match.

Senegal's victory earned the team an automatic qualification to the next round of the competition alongside Algeria.

Stars sit third in the group with three points from their only victory against Tanzania on Thursday, June 27.

The team now face an anxious wait to find out if they make it through to the next round as one of the best third-placed finishers, a situation Migne seems well aware of.

“We must now wait for the results of tomorrow [Tuesday] and await some help from God, we will see, but we learn a lot during this competition,” the French tactician divulged to Goal.
“I am very disappointed for my boys because during one hour we created some problems some difficulties at least for the Senegalese team. We were not so far but not so close, unfortunately," he continued.

Earlier, reported Kenyans have unleashed their anger and frustration on Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama following the team's 3-0 embarrassing defeat to Senegal.

Despite the Sebastien Migne-tutored side putting up a brave show during the clash, a section of Kenyans turned on Wanyama who they accused of making little or no impact.
