As was the case in 1990, 1992 and 2004, Kenya have been pitted against Senegal, while Algeria and East African rivals Tanzania complete Group C.

Here's all you need to know about Kenya at the Afcon ahead of the 32nd edition of the tournament.

The Stars had opened the qualifying campaign against Sierra Leone and lost 2-1 in Freetown after going down to 10 men when South Africa-based defender Brian Mandela was red carded just as the first half ended.

Sierra Leone were later suspended by Fifa for alleged government interference, thus reducing the Group to three competitors, and by the time Kenya travelled to face the Black Stars in Accra, where they lost by a solitary goal, they had already booked a place in the finals.
