BetOdds Kenya Kenya v Mozambique Friendlies Mozambique

Fans take to social media to vent their anger on the national team after they suffered defeat to visiting Os Mambas in friendly

Francis Kimanzi suffered his first defeat as Kenyan coach after falling by a solitary goal against Mozambique in a friendly played on Sunday.

A second-half strike by Canhembe Amancio was enough to give the visitors their first win in four attempts against the Harambee Stars and deny the Kenyans a chance to shine at home.

The defeat came a day after Kenyan marathon runner Eliud Kipchoge made distance running history in Vienna on Saturday.

Kipchoge became the first man to run the marathon in under two hours after clocking one hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds during the INEOS 1:59 Challenge at Prater Park in Austria.

Kipchoge, who was assisted by 41 pacemakers, entered the Guinness Book of World Records for running the first sub-two-hour marathon.

And on Sunday, Kenyans celebrated yet another success as Brigid Kosgei sensationally smashed the women's marathon world record by more than a minute at the Chicago marathon.

Kosgei easily sprinted to a world record in a blistering time of 2:14: 04, chipping off one minute, 21 seconds from the one held by Great Britain’s Paula Radcliff set in 2003.

To crown it all, Kenya qualified for their second consecutive Olympic Games, despite being beaten in the final of the Rugby Africa Women's Sevens in Monastir.

The Lionesses, who competed in Rio 2016, were beaten 15-14 by South Africa at the Mustapha Ben Jannet Stadium but it was a bittersweet victory for the Imbokodo.

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee had ruled before the tournament even if they won they would not be allowed to take up the automatic Tokyo 2020 place given to the winners.

That is because of a controversial rule preventing South African teams from qualifying from the African regional competition. Kenya had qualified for the final by beating hosts Tunisia 19-0 in the semi-final, while South Africa defeated Madagascar 29-0.

Kenyans have now taken to Twitter to blast the Harambee Stars for spoiling what looked like a successful sporting weekend after losing to the Os Mambas. Here is how they reacted.

We are an athletic country #Kenya #TeamKenya Athletics records broken and limits lowered. Congratulations Brigid Kosgei and Eliud Kipchoge . #harambeestars is a scam

@StateHouseKenya good eveningIssue a statement on the display of the #harambeestars against Mozambique and the playing surface at Kasarani which looked like my grandma's garden called "Sirundu" and the flailing KPL.

I tend to think we as Kenya should just accept we are not good in footaball. Athletics, volleyball, rugby and cricket are our thing. #harambeestars beaten today 0-1 by Mozambique at Kasarani during a friendly match.

#harambeestars May God intervene

#HarambeeStars we just attend for the love of the game.

Let me try and forget Harambee Stars for a while. More of Musa Juma pris. Brigid, Kipchoge have already done more than we deserve.

What do you expect from a team whose members become Pariah & vilified once injured while in line of duty, with No care . The lack-lustre performance isn't surprising. #harambeestars

FT. Kenya 0-1 MozambiqueSo #HarambeeStars 🇰🇪, what have I done to deserve this punishment? 💔 We came in rain, we cheered while wet and we lost. 😭 Anyways, here are pictures of me leaving while happy coz I won't let you kill me boys 💚💚
