Emmanuel Amuneke, coach of the Taifa Stars of Tanzania, has stated that his team is mentally, tactically and physically ready for their second group game against East African foe, Kenya, in the ongoing AFCON in Egypt.
Amuneke came under pressure after his side’s 2-0 defeat to tournament favourites, Senegal, in the first game of the group.
The game against Kenya will be the first sub-continental derby at AFCON for the first time, which has brought spot light on the game.

Kenya also lost 2-0 in their first game to Algeria at the competition. A defeat for either of the CECAFA teams could mean the end of the road in the competition.
The former Golden Eaglet coach, who qualified Tanzania to the competition for the first time in 39 years, said his side are ready to win the bragging rights after the encounter.
“We have worked very hard in all aspects, from physical aspect to the tactical aspect and to the technical aspect of the game,” he said.
“We have done that and we are playing a big game. But of course, we are ready, we are prepared to play against one of the best teams in Africa, full of talents in the team.
“But the most important thing for us is to be prepared psychologically from psychological point of view, to be able to manage the game and get the positive result that we want”.
The match comes up at the Cairo Stadium on June 30.
