Kenyans fans are optimistic that Harambee Stars will go past the Group stage of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

This after the team was drawn in Group C on Friday night in Cairo, Egypt, alongside neighbours Tanzania, Algeria and highest-ranked side Senegal, world Nr. 23.

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.
