Tanzania U20 women to hit Dar es Salaam on Tuesday after Nigeria defeat

Tanzania U20 women national team will arrive Dar es Salaam on Tuesday after Saturday’s 3-0 loss to Nigeria at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Saturday.

The Tanzanite ladies bowed to goals from Lillian Tule and Rasheedat Ajibade’s brace in the first leg, first round Fifa U20 Women’s World Cup qualifier in Benin City.

Upon their defeat, Sabatian Nkoma’s side were treated to a dinner party by governor Godwin Obaseki at the Government Banquet House on Saturday night.

At the event, the High Commissioner of Tanzania in Nigeria, Elias Mwandobo, lauded the Nigerian Football Federation for the wonderful host and the exceptional hospitality the Edo State government extended to them in Benin City.

Mwandobo, however, assured the country will reciprocate the gesture when the Falconets visit Dar es Salaam for the second leg on October 1.

Thereafter, Mrs Amina Karuma led Tanzanian delegation made up of 20 players and 10 officials left Benin City on Sunday evening to Abuja before departing on Monday to Addis Ababa, where they will connect to Dar es Salaam.

The second leg against the Falconets will take place at the Azam Complex Stadium with Sudanese Batol Mahjob Ibrahim as centre referee alongside compatriots Hanadi Mohammed Ali Ismail and Remaz Osman Mohammed Khalil as assistants.
