Amuneke spear-headed Tanzania’s qualification for the AFCON tournament after a 39-year absence and now he says the Taifa Stars will not be intimidated by the top rated teams.

‘If Tanzania is paired along side alongside Nigeria, then we would play Nigeria,” Amuneke told

‘If Tanzania can qualify for the Nation’s Cup, that means we are capable of playing any team in the continent of Africa,’ he said.

He however, noted that the Super Eagles have talented players with quality and they are one of the favourites for the title.
