Taifa Stars outshine Morocco



Tanzania's Taifa stars recorded yet another stunning result after thrashing 3-1 past the Atlas Lions of Morocco in a Group C World Cup qualifier played at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

TP Mazembe's Thomas Ulimwengu who replaced Simba's Mwinyi Kazimoto early in the second half, scored the game's opener in the 46th minute through a thrown in ball from Erasto Nyoni to give Tanzania a 1-0 lead over Morocco.

Ulimwengu's introduction in the second half proved to be a good tactical change by Kim Poulsen as provided an assist for his TP Mazembe teammate Mbwana Samatta in the 67th minute to double Tanzania's lead.

Samatta completed his brace in the 79th minute as he sealed Tanzania's 3-0 triumph over Morocco thanks to a well delivered cross from Thomas Ulimwengu.

Morocco's Achchakir Abderrahim was given matching orders in the 80th minute after an exchange of words with the match official, as things went from bad to worse for the Altas Lions.

With this result, Tanzania stay second in Group C with six points, one below leaders Ivory coast who have seven points. Morocco third with two points, and the bottom sees Gambia with one point.
