Emmanuel Amuneke Confirmed As New Coach Of Tanzania National Team

Former Nigeria youth coach Emmanuel Amuneke has been confirmed as the new head coach of Tanzania national team.

The 47-year-old signed a two-year deal to take over from Salum Mayanga, who was sacked for poor results.

The former Super Eagles and Barcelona forward led Nigeria U-17 team to World Cup glory in 2015 and has managed several clubs including Sudan’s Al Khartoum, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hazm amongst others.

Amuneke’s top target will be to attempt to get the Taifa Stars Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign back on track.

Tanzania are in group L of the 2019 Afcon qualifiers alongside Uganda, Lesotho and Cape Verde. They are currently joint second in the group standing with Lesotho after both teams played out 1-1 draw in the first round of matches. Uganda leads the group with three points as they defeated Cape Verde away from home.
