Football Federation president Jamal Malinzi speaks out ahead of the crucial encounter against .

The Taifa Stars go head-to-head with the Pharaohs in Dar Es Salam on Saturday afternoon, with only a huge win able to see Tanzania hold on to the hopes of qualifying to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

Speaking to KingFut, Malinzi was in no way short of words, claiming Tanzania were only playing for a win.

“Tanzania is looking forward to this game,” Malinzi said.

The Taifa Stars were beaten 3-0 by Egypt in the first leg of the qualifiers, but Malinzi is adamant they can hit back at Egypt.

“Yes, we will avenge our loss against Egypt,” he stressed.

Tanzania could qualify to the Africa Cup of Nations but they will have to start by defeating Egypt by a four-goal margin.

Regarding this possibility, Jamal Malinzi claimed everything was possible in football.

It is worth noting that Tanzania manager Boniface Mkwasa assured his side can also beat Egypt 3-0 just like the latter did last year, while stating that the Pharaohs should expect ‘no mercy’ from the Taifa Stars.
