"Due to the injuries of first-team players, interim coach [Etienne] Ndayiragije has made little changes to the squad which will face Kenya. Mohamed Ally Yusuf and Haruna Shamtei both from Lipuli FC and Oscar Godfrey Masai of Azam FC have been selected to fill the voids," the Tanzania Football Federation confirmed on a Facebook post.
