The Kenyan side is set against Senegal as there are no serious injury concerns.

It will be a decisive match for both sides as they focus on advancing to the round of 16 in the African Cup of Nations. Both sides are looking forward to a win to be sure of advancing to the knockout stages.

The Harambee Stars are confident that if they have the mentality, they had against the close neighbors Tanzania, they might win the match and comfortably advance.

A win for either side will mean they finish first or second in group C standings as Algeria are just three points away.

Kenya has no injury concerns according to the head coach Sebastien Migne. Joash Onyango and Philemon Otieno will be on the squad even though, it will be upon the coach to decide whether they play or not. “We know that from time to time, the mentality of Senegalese players may have some weaknesses. I hope that will be the case tomorrow [Monday], as they are under pressure. If our system works, we can hurt our opponents very much,” Migne told reporters.

“They have a lot of experience and in my opinion, they are the biggest favorites for the tournament. It will be a difficult match but we are ready for it.”

It is true that Kenya is facing one of the best sides in Africa, but Senegal is just a name, any wise tactic might cause confusion to the giants and render them weak.

From statistics, Kenya has never won a match against Senegal and have only managed a draw. Though these stats don’t favor the stars, they still have today to turntables.

Both sides are tied at the second place of group C, with the same points.

Kenya’s match against Senegal will be played at 1000hrs EAT.
