Tanzania head coach Charles Boniface Mkwassa has called up ten more players to beef up his squad to face the Super Eagles next month.
The team started training on Monday at the Sheikh Karume Memorial Stadium in Dar es Salaam and are currently without Yanga SC and Azam FC players as well as a huge chunk of foreign based players.
Both teams are set to face off in the Charity Shield match on Saturday, 22 August and thus the players have been allowed to train with their clubs.
The national team will set camp in Turkey for ten days from Sunday 23 August to prepare for the match and the coach, who had just seven players available, is expected to have a bigger group on Wednesday.
The new call-ups are: Said Mohamed, Vincent Andrew (both from Mtibwa Sugar), Mohamed Hussein, Ibrajim Hajibu (Simba SC), Hamis Ali, Juma Mbwana (KMKM), Tumba Sued (Coastal Union), Samuel Kamuntu (JKT Ruvu), Ibrahim Hilka (Zimamoto-Zanzibar) and Mohamed Yusuf (Prisons).
Players currently in camp: Said Ndemla, Hassan Isihaka, Abdi Banda (both Simba SC), Rashid Mandawa (Mwadui FC), Michael Aidan (Ruvu Shooting), Orgeness Mollel (Aspire Academy) and Abdulhaman Mbambi (Mafunzo) who are already in camp.Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
