Taifa Stars’ caretaker coach, Honor Janza is in buoyant mood ahead of the return leg of the African Nations Championship qualifier against Uganda.
Following Uganda’s 1-0 win in the first leg played in Dar es Salaam on Sunday, the two regional rivals will face off again at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on Saturday.
“It is a 50/50 affair,” the Zambian tactician said as quoted by ZamFoot before adding.
“Football is now dynamic, the same way Uganda won here, it is possible Tanzania can also win the other side.”
“For me, I like winning because I have tested winning and I know what it means. So we shall do our best against Uganda but winning is obviously our target and if we do, it will be good for us,” he added.
Janza was named on an interim basis on Monday, following the sacking of Danish coach Kim Poulsen – the latter was shown the exit due to poor results.
The Namungo head coach will be looking forward to impressing as the Tanzanian caretaker, who knows he could be appointed permanently.
He holds experience with the Zambian national team having won the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations as the technical director under the stewardship of Herve Renard.
Janza also guided the Chipopolo to the 2015 AFCON and will be looking forward to having a good start with Tanzania.
A slot at the January 2023 CHAN tournament in Algeria is at stake and the winner on aggregate after Saturday’s encounter will grab it.
