2019 AFCON: Tanzania wants friendly with Super Eagles



Tanzania Football Federation, the employer of Nigeria’s Coach Emmanuel Amuneke have disclosed that they are presently in talk with Nigeria and two other African teams for a warm up match ahead of the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

TFF technical director Ammy Ninje told Tanzania Newspaper, Citizen that they have requested Nigeria, Ghana and Burundi national teams to play against Taifa Stars before starting their campaign to win the continental title.

“Only one match has been confirmed which is against Egypt. However, we are still waiting for a response from Ghana, Nigeria and Burundi.

He said Taifa Stars are scheduled to play against the Egypt national soccer team, The Pharaohs, on June 13 at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Cairo.

He said their plan is to play as many international matches as possible before competing in the AFCON finals.

He said their target is to do wonders in the competition that will see other 23 nations competing for the continental honours. Tanzania’s last qualification for the AFCON finals was in 1980 in Lagos, Nigeria.

“We have so many technical plans, aiming to make some of the players get the international exposure,” said Ninje.
