Kenyans fans are optimistic that Harambee Stars will go past the Group stage of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
This will be Kenya's sixth appearance in the competition, having featured in 1972, 1988, 1990, 1992 and 2004 but they have never progressed past the knockout stage of the competition.
In the last edition they participated in 2004, Kenya lost the first two matches against Mali (3-1) and Senegal (3-0) before picking their first even win – 3-1 – against Burkina Faso in Tunisia.
Kenyans have reacted to the draw insisting that the team has the best chance to make it out of Group C.

This AFCON trophy is Kenya's. We had given these small teams of Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt and Senegal time to shine. But now they must lie down as the giant, harambee stars, does his thing #afcon2019draw— Kelvin Chege (@kelvin_chege) April 13, 2019
