- Tanzania Vs Lesotho – National stadium, Dar es Salaam @ 8pm
- Saturday June 10, 2017
Ahead of the opening game of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Cup qualifiers against Lesotho, Tanzania is confident after completing a one week camp in Egypt.
The Taifa Stars are back home where they are going to continue with preparations as they seek to earn maximum points on Saturday June 10, 2017 at the National stadium, Dar es Salaam.
Coach Salum Nyanga believes the camp in Alexandria has been timely as the boys concentrated well.
“First of all I can thank God,” said Nyanga as quoted by Bin Zubeiry. “We traveled safely and practicing for seven days here in Egypt has been great,” he added.
I can say that I have succeeded or success. The camp is good, the environment of the camp is good and we came to a place where no one could do movement (rotations) any exit or entry simply because we were in the camp of a five star hotel.
Yanga also revealed that the training sessions have been held in the night since the game against Lesotho will be played at 8pm come Saturday.
Common technical exercises have all been done well because they have everything we needed. We mainly practiced at night because our game will be at night. I urge Tanzanians to come just to support their team.
The Taifa Stars, three time CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup champions haven’t played at the finals of Africa’s most prestigious national competition since 1980.
Uganda and Cape Verde, who face off in Cape Verde on Saturday June 10 are the other teams in Group L.
