Tanzania Invite 10 More Players For Eagles

By Johnny Edward:

Tanzania head coach Charles Boniface Mkwassa has called up ten more players to beef up his squad to face the Super Eagles next month.

The team started training on Monday at the Sheikh Karume Memorial Stadium in Dar es Salaam and are currently without Yanga SC and Azam FC players as well as a huge chunk of foreign based players.

Both teams are set to face off in the Charity Shield match on Saturday, 22 August and thus the players have been allowed to train with their clubs.

The national team will set camp in Turkey for ten days from Sunday 23 August to prepare for the match and the coach, who had just seven players available, is expected to have a bigger group on Wednesday.

The new call-ups are: Said Mohamed, Vincent Andrew (both from Mtibwa Sugar), Mohamed Hussein, Ibrajim Hajibu (Simba SC), Hamis Ali, Juma Mbwana (KMKM), Tumba Sued (Coastal Union), Samuel Kamuntu (JKT Ruvu), Ibrahim Hilka (Zimamoto-Zanzibar) and Mohamed Yusuf (Prisons).

Players currently in camp: Said Ndemla, Hassan Isihaka, Abdi Banda (both Simba SC), Rashid Mandawa (Mwadui FC), Michael Aidan (Ruvu Shooting), Orgeness Mollel (Aspire Academy) and Abdulhaman Mbambi (Mafunzo) who are already in camp.


  • I didn’t want to comment on this type of news as I see it as anti-Super Eagles, for it great unnecessary fear, tension and worry on Nigerians and most importantly the Eagle’s camp(unless they don’t read papers). This may not go down well with journalist but I think the NFF should have a real sit down with the media to not report about our opponents. The advance football nations don’t do it. Check the internet and confirm this. Maybe these nations pay these articles as adverts to great fear in their opponents. If that is true then it is treasonable offence cooperating with another country against your country.
