Tanzania U20 head coach Jamhuri Kihwelo vows to come back stronger and believes his side has players who are capable of providing magic in the field of play despite a poor performance in the 2021 Total U20 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) taking place in Mauritania.
This was Tanzania’s first-ever continental tournament, finishing at the bottom of Group C with one point.
“It has been a tough learning curve for the team. We have met teams with great ability and very competitive games. It is our first time in this competition but we have picked so many lessons,” Kihwelo stated.
“Next time, we will come back as a better team. We now know what the tournament feels like.”
He went on commend the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) for giving them adequate resources during the Afcon U20 preparations.
“We know how to approach different games, how to prepare and what to expect in any match. We did well to qualify and come here because I feel it was very important to come and learn. Even a child is not born and the same day they start to walk,” said the tactician in conclusion.
