Dar es Salaam. The national Under-20 soccer team, Ngorongoro Heroes, coach Zuberi Katwila, says they are more than ready to face Sudan Wednesday.

The two teams face off in the semi-final of the 2019 Cecafa Youth Challenge Cup at the Pece War Memorial Stadium in Gulu, Uganda.

“Sudan are a good team, have a good coach and players, but we have our qualities too,” Katwila said yesterday.

The match kicks off 4pm, according to the Council of East and Central Africa Football Associations (Cecafa).

It takes place nearly three weeks before the national senior team, Taifa Stars, take on Sudan in the 2020 Africa Nations Championship qualifier.
