Kenya U17 national team have been knocked out of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations U17  road to Madagascar after they suffered a 1-2 loss in the hands of Cameroon in the return leg of the first round.

The Rising Stars needed to win by nine clear goals to progress to the next stage of the competition after they suffered a 0-7 loss in the first leg played two weeks ago away at the Stade de Bafoussam ,Cameroon.

Difficult task

Their task was made harder when they conceded a first half goal though Thierry Bella, with Lardy adding second one in what proved to be a tough assignment for the Rising Stars whose only goal of the match came in 89th minute from Kenneth Mukuria and were thus eliminated by 1-9 aggregate.

Kenya U17 was participating for the first time in the continental competition.
