"It is not like we are starting again, it is a continuation from where we stopped," the striker is quoted by Mwananchi.

"We have been at the Afcon and we know the sweetness associated with playing in this competition. On Friday, we will give our best and hope to win our first game. It is important to start the qualifiers on a high note."

The 26-year-old hasalso urged the fans to turn up in large numbers and cheer the team to victory.

"All we need is support from Tanzanians, we need the support and motivation in every match will play at home. If the fans fill the stadium, it will motivate us and make us give the best," Msuva concluded.

Tanzania are in Group J alongside Equatorial Guinea, Tunisia, and Libya.
