Simba Coach Statement (Head Coach Pablo Franco)
Head Coach Pablo Franco, said the squad is ready for the quarter-finals of the Confederations Cup Africa to be played tomorrow at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium at 1pm.

He said he knows the enthusiasm of Tanzanians to want to see the team reach the semi-finals after more than 20 years where we are now ready to give them that happiness.
“We are playing for a place in the semi-finals, not points, so we will make sure we use the opportunities we get to finish the game at home.
“As for the squad, we are ready, we have practiced and the players are in good shape. We know Tanzanians need to see the team reach the semi-finals after a long hiatus and we will make sure we achieve that.
“This is a knockout match we don’t need points. We need a lot of capital at home so we have to use the opportunities we get to put ourselves in a good position for the replay, ”said Pablo.
Mzamiru: Players we have a ‘ghost’ to reach the Semi-Finals
Midfielder Mzamiru Yassin, has made it clear that the mission of all the players is to make sure we give the Orlando Pirates a place in the Semi-Finals of the Confederations Cup Africa.
Mzamiru said we have reached the quarter-finals three times but we will not reach half so this time the goal is to make sure we cross.
Mzamiru added that while they are in camp to practice their talks are to encourage each other to make sure they fight to cross this stage.
The midfielder has gone further and said that a large percentage of the players in the squad were present when we reached the quarter-finals so the current goal is to reach the semi-finals.
“Most of us were there three times when we reached the quarter-finals but we have never reached the semi-finals, this is our time everyone is ready. We ourselves have high morale and we are ready to achieve our goals, ”said Mzamiru.
