Tanzania star for F/Eagles clash
Ulimwengu - In
Ulimwengu, 19, was one of several players who missed the first leg in Dar es Salaam, which Nigeria won 2-1.
He is his team’s top scorer in the AYC qualifiers with two goals, which he scored in the previous round against Sudan, and has also been capped by his country’s Olympic team as well as the full international team.
Ramadan Hassan Khamis and Manula Aishi Salum, who were suspended for the first game in Tanzania, will also be available for selection as well as Germany-based midfielder James Sekule, who also missed the first clash.
Tanzania coach Jakob Michelsen has insisted his Ngorogoro Heroes still have a chance at the Kwara State Stadium in Ilorin on Sunday against the African champions.
“We could still turn the table against Nigeria especially with the presence of some of our key players who missed the first game,” said the young Danish coach.
The Tanzania U20s arrived Lagos Thursday and are due in Ilorin Friday morning.
The winners of this second round match-up will battle the overall winners of the qualifier between Congo and South Africa for a place in next year’s AYC in Algeria.
Congo won their first leg at home 2-1.
