Tanzania Vs Uganda Cranes,6:00

CRANES SKIPPER Denis Onyango, currently alias Mr. Clean Sheets in the Africa Cup qualifiers will be determined to extend his record as they take on Tanzania in the last game.

Cranes qualified in November with Patrick Kaddu’s goal ate Namboole and Sebastien Desabre is expected to experiment with some few young players as he prepares for CHAN.

“We have already qualified and one of our tasks is to take a clean-sheet to Egypt but I give a lot of respect to Tanzania,” Onyango said.

Cranes had a week-long camp in Ismailia Egypt and Farouk Miya was the last professional player to arrive in camp from HK Gorica were he does his professional duties. The game will take place on Sunday.

They are 15 foreign-based players summoned by the French tactician Sebastien Desabre.

What Tanzania need;

Tanzania, the hosts only need to beat Uganda and hope Lesotho falter in Cape Verde to qualify.

Lesotho are second in Group L on five points, same as Tanzania but have a better head-to-head record. The two are a massive eight behind Uganda. All three – Lesotho, Tanzania and Cape Verde – can still qualify on the final day.

“All I am asking for is for Tanzanians to continue to supporting Taifa Stars with prayers for the team to down Uganda Cranes and sail through,” chairman of a special committee formed to ensure the Taifa Stars qualify for the finals Paul Mukonda said.

NO MORE HUGE SPENDING: Real Madrid’s Big-Spending ‘Cannot Continue’ As Boss Zinedine Zidane Faces Major Frustration In Pursuit Of Mbappe And Paul Pogba For Squad Rebuild…

Published

on

Zinedine Zidane’s attempts to overhaul his Real Madrid squad could be frustrated as the days of ‘€100million (£89m) signings are over’, according to reports in Spain on Wednesday.

Since returning to the manager’s chair at the Bernabeu, Zidane has been attempting to overhaul an ageing squad in a bid to bring back the level of success he enjoyed in his first spell, when he won three Champions League titles.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba are both of interest to the club but Marca’s front cover on Wednesday insists the days of Galactico-style signings is now ‘over’ due to the vast number of players contracted to the club.

AS Diario’s cover story reveals how that of June 30, Real Madrid will have 37 players under contract at the Bernabeu.

Accompanying a graphic that showed Zidane surrounded by a number of puzzle pieces, to represent the different players, they report that the Frenchman needs to find a new home ‘for a third’ of the squad.

There are currently 26 players contracted at the club and a further 11 out on loan, leaving Zidane with some major decisions to make in terms of who gets a stay of execution – and who is shown the exit door.

The likes of Martin Odegaard and Achraf Hakimi have been the two stand-outs on loan spells at Real Sociedad and Borussia Dortmund respectively and they will believe they can push for regular minutes for Real next season.

Players such as Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez both remain on lucrative contracts at the club and an inability to shift such big earners could stifle moves for some of their top targets.

Bale has long been deemed not to be in Zidane’s long-term plans and was previously close to a move to China.

The Welshman was ready to join Chinese outfit Jiangsu Suning on a free transfer last summer before Madrid dramatically pulled the plug on that deal.

For Colombian midfielder Rodriguez, his contract expires in June 2021 and so if the club cannot attract a buyer this summer, they risk being lumbered with the player for another 12 months.

Lucas Vasquez and Luka Modric are two others with less than certain futures at the club while Dani Ceballos may not have done enough while on loan at Arsenal to convince Zidane that he is ready to slot back into the club’s midfield alongside Casemiro and Fede Valverde.

Alongside Mbappe and Pogba, who have longed been linked with a move to the Spanish capital, Eduardo Camavinga and Rayan Cherki are said to be high up on the wishlist of the Madrid boss if he can shift the deadwood.

Champions League And Europa League ‘Moved To July And August’ With All International Matches In June ‘Suspended Until The Autumn’ As Coronavirus Crisis Continues To Hit The Football Calendar….

Published

on

The final stages of this season’s Champions League and Europa League are reportedly set to be moved to July and August as the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the football calendar.

And all international matches scheduled for June are likely to be postponed until Autumn to make way for the completion of the 2019-20 season.

The move comes, according to German outlet ZDF, ahead of the latest UEFA video conference set to take place on Wednesday.

All football across Europe has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, and uncertainty surrounds when it will be safe again to continue.

But there now appears to be a prevailing view that this season should finish before the next begins that could even see the Champions League final played behind closed doors, according to the Independent.

They claimed on Wednesday that voiding the 2019-20 season is now reportedly ‘off the table’ with UEFA and the European leagues committing to completing the current campaign.

European football’s governing body is set to to stage another video conference on Wednesday where plans to finish the season, as well as issues over player contracts and the transfer window.

Detailed discussions are already believed to have taken place, with all parties in agreement with the view from England that the season must be completed.

It could lead to both the Champions League and Europa League showpieces taking place in front of empty stadiums.

Sportsmail revealed on Tuesday that English clubs have serious reservations about resuming European competition this season.

The FA are expected to raise concerns about heading abroad given the risks attached to being on airplanes, airports, hotels and the varying degrees of Covid-19 at different destinations, even when travel restrictions are lifted.

International friendlies had been scheduled for June as warm ups ahead of summer tournaments, but they are also set to be moved.

Euro 2020 and the Copa America have already been postponed by 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic which has brought the world of sport to a complete standstill.
