The Kenya national football team, Harambee Stars, lost 2-0 to India to finish second in the 2018 Hero Intercontinental Cup played on Sunday, June 10, 2018, at the Mumbai Football Arena.

The Blue Tigers’ captain Sunil Chhetri put the hosts on the front foot in the eighth minute, before notching a brace on the half-hour mark to see India head to the breather with a two-goal advantage.

India would then hold onto the lead in the second half to clinch the cup on home soil.

Stars won two matches in the four-nation tournament, against New Zealand (2-1) and Chinese Taipei (4-0), with the matches aimed at getting the team in shape for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.

Kenya is set to face Ghana in September this year, with Ethiopia also in line for the Stars in October.
