Tanzania national team players received the unwanted visit of deployed Madagascar Army soldiers into their hotel in Antananarivo ahead of their 6th and last game in the World Cup qualifiers.

Both Tanzania and Madagascar are already booted out of the race by Benin (who need a draw) and RD Congo who must win today in order to qualify for the next round.

That means that there is no longer stake in the Madagascar vs Tanzania clash. And yet, the Taif Stars received a muscular descent of the soldiers.

Soldiers have invaded Tanzania team hotel in Antananarivo and stationed at players’ rooms corridor with guns ahead of World Cup Qualifiers match against hosts Madagascar. Soldiers claimed that there are Covid-19 cases in Tanzania 

The Taifa Stars blew their chance to make it from Group J after they suffered a 3-0 home defeat against the Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday.

Goals from Gael Kakuta, Idumba Fasika, and Ben Malango ensured that the Taifa Stars lost the top spot as Benin, who beat Madagascar 2-0, took charge on 10 points from five matches.

The Leopards are second on eight points from five matches while Tanzania dropped to third on seven points and Madagascar are last on three points.

Despite their defeat to Congo, coach Kim Poulsen is confident they will pick up a win away.

“The defeat against Congo was difficult to take, it is a result we did not expect but it happened, losing 3-0 was painful, but we have forgotten about the result and are now focused to play well against Madagascar,” Poulsen said.

During the first meeting, Tanzania emerged winners after a 3-2 victory at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium.

While Tanzania will play away, Congo will wind up their group matches with a home game against Benin at Pentecost Martyrs Stadium on Sunday.
