This will be the fifth time Cranes will be playing in the competition but they have never gone past the group stage. For Taifa Stars, this will be the second time they are taking part in the second-tier competition after achieving the fete about 10 years ago.
After helping the team to qualify, Tanzania coach Etienne Ndayiragijje assured the fans they will be giving their best to ensure they register positive results.
“We thank God for making a return to Chan, and we will do good preparations to ensure we go past the initial stage. It is a competitive tournament and we want to show we have what it takes to be among the best in the continent.”
The first match will be between hosts Cameroon against Zimbabwe.
