Amuneke: Uganda Will Be Tough For Tanzania


The new coach of Tanzania’s senior national team, Emmanuel Amuneke has spoken of his desire for victory in his first match on the job, but admits his team’s opponents, Uganda will be tough.

Amuneke is set to line The Taifa Stars out for the first time away to The Cranes in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier early next month and, though he disclosed that he wants to win, the former Super Eagles winger acknowledged that the match in Kampala will not be a stroll in the park.

Uganda top Group L with 3 points after recording a 1-0 win against Cape Verde on Match Day 1 of the qualifiers.

Tanzania have a point following their 1-1 draw against Lesotho, and the 1994 African Footballer of The Year admitted it will be tough to go through, as only two teams will qualify from the group.

However, Amuneke further said he has already got down to real business at his new duty post, and enthused that his players will give a good account of themselves when they file out against The Cranes.

“We can’t just say we want to go and win in Kampala; yes, we want to win but we must get ready to play a very good side. We will give a good account of ourselves,” Amuneke concluded.
