Tanzania coach, Ettiene Ndayiragije has named 25 players to join the squad ahead of facing Burundi in a friendly, scheduled on Sunday 11 October 2020 at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium, Dar es Salaam.

Ndayiragije has called KMC right back Israel Mwenda for the first time, following his fine form in the ongoing Tanzania top-flight, with his club being in top four. Mwenda was in the Tanzania U-20 team that won the regional CECAFA Cup title last year.

Polisi Tanzania skipper Iddi Mobby also got his debut call for the national team, alongside experienced Shomary Kapombe, Mohammed Hussein of Simba and Bakari Mwamnyeto of Young Africans in defense.

The Burundian coach also recalled Azam FC’s goalkeeper David Kissu to the squad following a perfect start in the domestic campaign.

TP Mazembe winger Thomas Ulimwengu rejoined his old friend Mbwana Samatta in the national team, after missing several call ups since the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations campaign.
