Algeria begin their campaign to win the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 1990 as they face Victor Wanyama and Kenya.

Algeria has not won the Africa Cup of Nations since 1990, and exited at the group stage in 2017. They now face what Coach Djamel Belmadi calls a “rebuilding” period, according to the IOL news site. In fact, The Desert Foxes’ world FIFA ranking has dropped from a high of 18th in 2014, to 68th where it stands today. That rebuilding period starts on Sunday when Algeria opens their latest chase for the AFCON title by facing Kenya, a team that Belmadi warns his side “must not take lightly.” Led by Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama, Kenya returns to the AFCON for the first time since 2004 and will try to make their mark right away by scoring an upset in the match that will live stream from Egypt.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the Algeria Vs. Kenya Sunday Africa Cup of Nations Group C match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is set for 10 p.m. Eastern European Time on Sunday, June 23, at the 30,000-seat 30 June Stadium, also known as Egyptian Air Defense Stadium, in Cairo, Egypt.

In Algeria, that start time will be 9 p.m. Central European Time, while the game will start at 11 p.m. Eastern Africa Time in Kenya.

In the United Kingdom, the game starts at 9 p.m. British Summer Time, while in the United States the live stream gets underway at 4 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, or 1 p.m. Pacific. In the Republic of Indonesia, the game gets underway at 3 a.m. Western Indonesian Time on Monday, June 24, 5 a.m. Eastern.

If Kenya is to make that mark, it will likely come by emphasizing their defensive strengths. The Harambee Stars have conceded only twice in their last seven matches, as Stats Zone notes.

But with an attack keyed by Riyad Mahrez, who has now won English Premier League titles with two different clubs, Leicester and Manchester City, per the BBC, along with Galatasaray attacking midfielder Sofiane Feghouli, and FC Porto forward Yacine Brahimi, Kenya will find its back line pushed to the brink.
