Tanzania’s head coach Zubeiry Katwila has said they have what it takes to win the Cecafa U-20 Challenge Cup trophy.

The Tanzanian side takes to the field this afternoon in the first Group B match at the Fufa Technical Center Stadium in Njeru. Katwila told URN that his boys are in shape and have not just come to participate but rather win the trophy. "Our boys are very ready to carry the trophy home,” added the confident coach.

The Tanzanian skipper Dickson Job also made it clear they are prepared to prove a point. "It is true that Uganda is among those teams that have frustrated our hopes in several tournaments. But this time we are better prepared,” he added.

Ethiopia's head coach Yosef Tesfaye however warned that Tanzania should not be too confident because all these players are in the same age brackets and can compete.

The second game in Group B will see Kenya’s Raising Stars face Zanzibar on Day 2 of the regional tournament.

In the first game played at the Njeru venue on Saturday Burundi came from behind to force a 3-3 draw against South Sudan. Striker Dani Lual Gumnok scored a hat-trick for South Sudan, while Burundi Yassin Dushime, Karim Niyonkuru (penalty) and Hamimu Hakizimana netted for Burundi.
