Emmanuel Amuneke’s Tanzania have bounced back from a 3-0 loss at Cape Verde at the weekend with a 2-0 win over the AFCON group rivals today.
They are now second on the table with five points from four matches, while Cape Verde have four points.
The other group game will see bottom team Lesotho host leaders Uganda, who have seven points, later today.
Belgium-based skipper Mbwana Samatta scored a goal, provided an assist and also lost a penalty.
Tanzania took the lead after 29 minutes courtesy of a great work by Samatta and in the 58th minute the Genk star rifled home a second goal for The Taifa Stars.
