TANZANIA U-17 soccer team ‘Serengeti Boys’ need a win in today’s game when they play against Angola to stay in an advantageous position, as far as securing a place in the semi-finals.

The match, to be played at Stade de l’Amitie in Libreville, will be officiated by Ivory Coast’s Abou Coulibaly, who will be assisted by Guinea’s Mamady Tere and Libya’s Attia Amsaad.

The game’s fourth official will be Egypt’s Mohamed Maarouf and Reunion’s Ismael Locate will serve as match commissioner.

Serengeti head coach, Bakari Shime, has disclosed the side’s game against Angola in the group B of the U-17 African Cup of Nations finals, slated for today, promises to be tough.

Shime said he saw Angola play the group’s other team, Niger, shortly after Serengeti Boys had played Mali in the opening game.“It will be a closely contested duel and we are going to give our all. The two teams’ results in their previous matches make the game tough,” he disclosed.

Serengeti Boys registered a 0-0 draw with Mali in group B’s opening game on Monday and Angola then settled for a 2-2 draw with Niger later the same day.

“Angola should be watched closely given they managed to score two goals and level matters in the second half. This means they can quickly address their weaknesses,” Shime said.

“My team, though, is in great shape, I believe I will get good results tomorrow (today). Tanzanians should continue praying for us, we will achieve success.”

Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) president, Jamal Malinzi, revealed shortly after Serengeti Boys’ Monday game the ability by the outfit to hold the highly fancied Mali was caused by motivation the former had from Minister for Information, Culture, Arts and Sports, Harrison Mwakyembe.

Malinzi, who is in Libreville, disclosed Mwakyembe’s message to Serengeti Boys motivated the team to put impressive showing.“It is true the team has prepared well for the tournament but the government’s message, issued by Mwakyembe, motivated the youngsters,” he said.
