Yanga chairman Llyod Nchunga

Mainland champions Young Africans have arrived safely in Cairo yesterday afternoon ready for their Champions League return leg match against hosts Zamalek tomorrow.

Yanga conformed to the regulation imposed by the Confederation of African Football to limit their contingent to 40, including players and officials.

Half of the contingent comprises players of the team with the balance as officials and technical staff.

The match to be played at the army Stadium in Cairo tomorrow is s decider of which team would advance into the next stage of the continent’s champion’s league.

Yanga battled to 1-1 draw during their first leg match played before their own fans in Dar es Salaam to open a week prospect of advancing into the next stage should they fail to beat the Egyptians.

However, the club’s chairman Llyod Nchunga who also accompanied the team to Cairo said they were received at the airport by officials of the Tanzania High Commissioner in the country.

The Yanga officials said all is well for the clash and reminded fans at home to pray for their team while players have the absolute responsibility to overturn the first leg result into successful tour.

Yanga have not won a match against an Egyptian side in Cairo or elsewhere in that country as Nchunga says there is a big possibility to change the poor historical background.

Nchunga said the weather is slightly cool in Cairo as contrasted to the hot conditions of Dar es Salaam.
