Former Harambee Stars coach, Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee has tipped Kenya to leave a mark in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Kenya booked a slot in the continental tournament after an impressive display in the qualifiers, finishing second behind Ghana in Group H.

Stars have since been pooled alongside Algeria, Senegal and East Africa counterparts, Tanzania, in Group C of the 32nd edition of the competition.

Despite the clear challenge Algeria and Senegal would potentially pose to Kenya in the group stages, Mulee believes Stars can shake off the two nations' threat and progress to the knock-outs.

The former tactician contends beating Tanzania and drawing against Algeria would be enough to ensure safe progression to the next stage of the tournament.

"I think we will beat Algeria and draw with Tanzania and qualify for the round of 16 even before our final match against Senegal,” Mulee told Nairobi News.
“Kenya has really improved under coach Sebastien Migne. The team has conceded only one goal in the qualification matches (under the French coach)," he added.

Mulee was the last coach to guide Harambee Stars to the Afcon in 2004 and the first to lead the country to their only victory in the competition against Burkina Faso.
