Karia inspires U-23 to beat South Sudan

THE Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has conveyed its commitment to the national teams following the achievement they have attained for the nations, including qualifying for the world cup finals and winning trophies in global competitions.

The president of the Tanzania Football Federation, Wallace Karia, made these remarks on Tuesday during the Under-23 ‘Ngorongoro Heroes’ training for the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations qualifier game against South Sudan.

Karia told the national envoys: “Tanzania has high hopes; let’s fight for our country’s honour.

We have placed a lot of force on the youth and women’s teams, as you are the future of our nation.”

Also, Karia urged the players engaged to AFCON to display quality in the qualifying matches to help them promote their names on various platforms because all eyes will be on them.

The national team coach, Hemed Morocco, said, “what is important, there are no injuries in the team. Therefore, the team is in good shape for their game against South Sudan. And we have continued to make good combinations between players.

“We have prepared well for the game because the goal is to qualify for AFCON; we are trying to create a great combination between the players because it is a group of 35 players, drilled to build a strong squad.

We are only asking for support from Tanzania, as our federation has given us. We are carrying the national flag, and we are representing the nation. We promise to fight as much as possible and bring victory for our country,” said Morocco.

One of the players, Denis Nkane said, “We thank God that we are doing well, we have found a good connection, we are attending well to the coach’s instructions.

As young players, when we grow up in the camp and when we grow up on the training ground, we make sure that we give each other morale to ensure that we do well in this competition to seek the ticket to qualify for AFCON.”

Speaking on their opponent, Nkane noted: “South Sudan is good and challenging, but we ensure we prepare well to do well. Also, as players, it is a way that we can get opportunities in different teams because the whole world will be watching us,” he said.
