Canhembe Amancio’s lone goal was all Mozambique needed to silence Harambee Stars 1-0 at home, in a match of several wasted chances at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani.
Francis Kimanzi, in only his second match in charge since the exit of Sebastian Migne could not pull the strings, with Egypt next on his list of opponents.
Stars started off strongly pressing the visitors into their own half within the first five minutes, with flawless passes traded between Wanyama, Lawrence Juma, Clifton Miheso and Cliff Nyakeya giving Olunga two slim chances that early.
Kenya, who started the game brightly, missed many open chances with Michael Olunga and Jesse Were the main culprits.
The loss is coach Francis Kimanzi’s first since replacing Frenchman Sebastien Migné. His first game was a 1-1 draw against Uganda in another friendly.
