Emmanuel Amunike qualifies Tanzania to first AFCON in 39 years

By  | 


For Emmanuel Amunike, joining the Tanzanian side after four months without a coaching job and to think that he will be the one to break the jinx of not qualifying for the African Cup of Nations, AFCON for 19 years would have certainly be a dream stretched too far.

However with the outcome of today’s qualifiers with Uganda, Amunike has now done what couldn’t be done in the football history of Tanzania since 1980.



The Nigerian born, guided the Taifa Stars through a 3-0 win over Uganda.

Goals from Simon Msuwa, Erasto Nyoni and Aggrey Morris booked the Taifa Stars’ place in Egypt as they displaced Lesotho to finish second in the group log with eight points from six games.



Racall that On 23 December 2008, Amunike took over the head coaching duties at former team Julius Berger, after completing two years of coaching courses in Europe. For a while, he combined this position with the role for the Red Devils, but eventually quit his post in England to concentrate on his coaching career.



BlackBox Nigeria gathered from Wikipedia that Amunike was sacked halfway through his first season after conflicts with management, despite saving the team from relegation. The club however later claimed he was sacked for “over gross insubordination”. He was hired in early November 2009 as the new coach of Ocean Boys FC. He became coach of Al Khartoum SC in November 2017, and left in March 2018.



On 6 August 2018, he was appointed as Tanzania national football team head coach
