World Cup is no longer theirs, but also ours

AS the World Cup is fiercely boiling in Qatar, we as Tanzanians should take a lengthy study on the remarkable wins of countries that were usually considered as a minnows over the so-called global giants.

We wish Taifa Stars were Saudi Arabia who floored Latin American giants Argentina, or Japan who downsized the powerful European giants Germany, but most importantly, we must learn from their remarkable wins to build confidence that we too can reach that stage one day and attain the same mileage.

Taking from our experience in the Amputee Football World Cup finals in Turkey and the FIFA Under 17 Women World Cup in India, we believe Taifa Stars can also stun the world due to the track road laid by our envoys in the two World Cup finals.

We have enough time to prepare ourselves, our players and team’s management for the next World Cup mission, but first we have to sort out all problems that for many years have barred Taifa Stars from playing in the finals.

From the 2022 FIFA World Cup, it is evident World Cup is no longer theirs; rather it deserves every nation with determination and zeal to be there.

The Qatar World Cup has been one of the most unpredictable in quite some time, with two historic upsets on consecutive days; Argentina losing to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday and then Germany lost to Japan on Wednesday. Both saw the giants blow a lead and fall 2-1.

We believe the world is set to witness more miracles happening, and that would leave indelible positive memories in the minds and hearts of every one considering the level of preparedness and devotion shown by all participants.

We are certain that though we missed this year finals, Tanzanian players, sports bodies must use the World Cup finals to prepare better national teams for the 2026 World Cup and with determination and proper planning we can achieve the desired goal.

We the Tanzanians who are ardent fans of football are already in Qatar as the globalisation of the beautiful game keeps bringing spectacular results.

We end up by wishing Tanzanians a positive and profitable watching of the World Cup finals so that in future we can play there physically after learning new things from the countries featuring in the Qatar finals.
