The Harambee Stars conceded twice in nine first-half minutes as Baghdad Bounedjah and Riyad Mahrez found the net in Cairo to get Algeria’s Group C campaign off to a flying start.
As such, Migne is aware a positive result against Tanzania, who lost 2-0 to Senegal in their first group game, is vital if Kenya are to maintain hope of progressing beyond the group stage.
