Former Super Eagles star and Taifa Stars of Tanzania coach, Emmanuel Amuneke has once again been appointed as a member of the CAF Technical Study Group to oversee this year’s U-17 AFCON tournament in Tanzania next month.
The former Zamalek star, who led Tanzania to their first African Cup of Nations (AFCON) appearance in nearly four decades after defeating Uganda last weekend, will have two roles to play at the tournament as he is also saddled with the responsibility of ensuring the host nation plays a brand of football.
Amuneke’s appointment comes as no surprise to many who have followed the progress of the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup winner, who was part of the FIFA 2018 World Cup Technical Study Group as well as the recently concluded U-20 AFCON in Niger.
His job at the tournament will be to spot standout players and also provide expatriate technical input to ensure the tournament is a huge success.
Nigeria, Tanzania, Angola and Uganda are placed in Group A whilst Guinea, Morocco, Cameroon and Senegal make up the pairings in Group B.
The tournament kicks off on the 14th of April, with Nigeria and Tanzania opening hostilities.
