Harambee Stars defender Philemon Otieno has admitted they were poor in the first half but hailed the introduction of Johanna Omollo in the second half.
Otieno who started at right-back got an early booking in the game and according to the Gor Mahia defender, the show they gave in the first half was not a good one but felt they did better in the second half.
“We didn’t play well in the first half but I think the introduction of Tosh (Johanna Omollo) stabilized us. There was a change too when Marcelo (Eric Ouma) came on. We were a bit shaky in the first half but I think we grew in the game. We can only do better,” Otieno told Futaa.
The defender admitted that they have no option now but to get a result against Tanzania in their next game.
“This is a tournament and there is no time for mourning. We have no option but to get a result in our next game. There are no easy games here and we will have to give our all to achieve our aim in the game against Tanzania,” Otieno added.
Tanzania too lost their opening game against Senegal with the same margin and the team that will go down in the tie is likely to face an early exit from the tournament.
