thumbnail Hello,

The Taifa Stars of Tanzania will face African champions Egypt in a friendly match now re-arranged to be played in Cairo at the behest of the Egyptians.

The November 19 tie was originally slated to be played in the Tanzanian capital city of Dar es Salaam before Egypt asked that it be played in Cairo. They wish to involve players from domestic champion,s Al Ahly who are also involved in the final of the CAF Champions League.  

Tanzania failed to advance to the final qualifying round for the 2010 World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations and are now focussing on the Championship of African Nations (CHAN), a Nations Cup for players in the local league.

They are billed to tackle Sudan on November 29 in continuation with CHAN, whose finals will be played next year in Ivory Coast.
