The finals were due to he held in Cameroon, but in January the country was stripped of hosting rights over concerns at the slow pace of preparations. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) moved the tournament to Egypt.

The tournament was eventually pushed back by six days to cater for Ramadan and allow Muslim players time to rest and recover after a month of fasting.

There are three stadiums in Cairo: International Stadium, 30 June Stadium and Al Salam Stadium.

Games will also be played in Alexandria, Ismailia and Suez.

Kenya must prepare lube.

Hata mimi naona hivyo though group games za tourna hutaka pragmatism.
Draw the hard games by all means possible and win the easy ones and you’re thru.

tukwame na Benin Madagascar alafu draw na uganda

Niko nyuma ya DRC ichukukue

Being in the same pot means you cant play them

Usitaje Harambee Stars.

We have been drawn with Senegal,Algeria and our neighbours Tanzania.
Maybe we can lose to Senegal,draw with Algeria and no matter what we beat kaka zetu Tanzania!
That maybe enough depending on results in other groups.
The teams in each group play in a single round-robin format, and after the group stage, the top two teams and the four best third teams will advance to the round of 16.
Let’s go Kenya!Lets go!
