Les Verts D’Algerie will play in Group C of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations together with Senegal, Kenya, and Tanzania.

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations draw has been announced, and Algeria will be part of Group C together with Senegal, Kenya, and Tanzania.

And the nation’s head coach Djamel Belmadi has promised that he will prepare his team for the challenges ahead.

“Kenya and Tanzania are two teams that have not played the African Cup for some time, especially Tanzania,” Belmadi told Goal.

“They have benefited from this expansion of the Afcon to 24 teams.”

“But if they are there it is because they have real merit,” he added.

“And all these teams will be well studied.”

He explained: “We will watch all of their last games. And we will work and prepare in a better way for this first game against Kenya.”
