Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has weighed in on the recent AFCON 2019 draw which saw Kenya pitted against Senegal, Algeria and Tanzania in Group C.

According to the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Kenya will be heading to the tournament set for June/July in Egypt without set targets.

“We don’t have targets, we just have to work hard game by game and make sure we can collect points,” he told BBC Sport.

“There’s no one to underestimate because when you make it to AFCON, you have to be a good team so we are in a tough group. Hopefully we can try and work hard and go through.”

Wanyama is also relishing their clash with Tanzania on 27 June at the 30 June stadium in Cairo.

“It’s tough, I thought these people want East African countries to fight,” he joked.

“I know it’s a big derby, so they are our brothers, so it will be tough as well and we are looking forward to the challenge.

“I think it’s good, it’s a great achievement for me to be able to lead my team into the Nations Cup this year and we just want to go there and enjoy ourselves and try and give the best performance we can give.”

Kenya’s first match is on 23 June against Algeria and they complete their Group C campaign eight days later, both games are at Cairo’s 30 June stadium.
