Poulsen braced tough Zambia clash



Taifa Stars head coach Kim Poulsen is looking forward to a tough match against African Champions Zambia this Saturday at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

The Chipolopolo who have recently be named Caf national team of the year, will play this match as they make final preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations which will be held in South Africa next year.

"We are happy that we will be playing the African champions. Its a team full of experienced players, thats why they are Champions. Playing them will help us to prepare well for our games next year," Poulsen told supersport.com.

"It will be a tough game, because we will be playing the team in Africa. But we have good and talented players, so they should expect a tough game from us - from the first to the last minute," he added.

Stars who moved for places to 130 in the Fifa world rankings will face the Chipolopolo who are placed 34th in the rankings without their two Stars players, Mbwana Samatta and Thomas Ulimwengu who are sidelined with injuries.

"Samatta and Thomas will be out, while Amri Kiemba will be on a fitness. We have a huge team of 20 players, we pick out a strong squad to play the game and try to our best to come out with a victory," Poulsen insisted.
