AFCON: Former Super Eagles Winger, Emmanuel Amuneke Set History With Tanzania


Former Super Eagles Winger, Emmanuel Amuneke set history with Tanzania after a 39-year wait to qualifier for Africa Cup of Nations with the 3-0 win over Uganda in Dar es Salaam.


Goals from Simon Msuwa, Erasto Nyoni and Aggrey Morris booked the Taifa Stars’ place in Egypt already-qualified Uganda from Group L as the East African nation displaced Lesotho to finish second in the group log with eight points from six games.

The triumph comes as a great achievement for the Ex-Golden Eaglet coach who was appointed Tanzania head coach last August and Amuneke become the second Nigerian coach, after late Stephen Keshi [with Togo and Nigeria], to guide a country to the biennial continental showpiece.

The 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations will be the first hosted in June and this edition will see 24 teams participate.
