Apart for host Egypt, the Senegalese team is tipped to be a major force in this year Africa Cup of Nations. The star-studded Senegal team has been doing justice to their tag as they currently on a six games winning streak conceded only one goal in the six games.
The central point of the Senegalese attack will undoubtedly be Liverpool talisman, Sadio Mane. Kalidou Koulibaly will be at the heart of the defense, Gueye will orchestrate the midfield while former captain Alou Cisse will be at the dugout as manager. Many fans expect the squad to go all the way to the final and win their first ever Africa Cup of Nations.
Senegal will be without their star player Sadio Mane. The Foward has been suspended for the encounter following accumulated yellow cards in the qualifying round. However, Senegal is expected to win comfortably against Tanzania.
Tanzania, on the other hand, is making a return to the competition after 39 years, all thanks to their Nigerian tactician Emmanuel Amuneke. The Tafia Stars will be hoping to begin their campaign by getting at least a point from the number one ranked African team in the Fifa World rankings.
The Tanzania team have only managed 3 wins from their last 19 games. Their last game was a stalemate with Zimbabwe with the scoreline reading 1-1.
