The Taifa Stars will return to Dar es Salaam on Tuesday to continue preparation for their AFCON qualifier against Nigeria…on September 5.

Tanzania’s Taifa Stars stepped up their preparations ahead of next month’s African Nations Cup qualifier against Nigeria by playing a friendly match against Libya in Turkey.

The team, which is currently camping in Kertepe, Turkey, went down 2-1 to the North Africans yesterday at the Kertepe Stadium; Azam skipper John Raphael Bocco scored the consolation goal for the East Africans.

The team is expected back in Dar es Salaam from the one-week camp next week Tuesday.

They take on the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their second group match of the AFCON-2017 qualifiers. Stars lost 3-0 to Egypt in their first group “G” match staged in Cairo in June.

The team coached by Charles Benjamin Mkwasa is made up of 29 players, including five foreign-based players.

They will play their next game this weekend against Kuwait before heading home on Tuesday.
