Nyoni was part of the Taifa Stars’ squad which dispatched Kenya in the first round of the tournament, which has been designed for players plying their trade in domestic events.

The defender also featured for the Tanzania team that knocked Burundi out of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Nyoni disclosed the support the team enjoyed from fans, journalists and officials played crucial role in the team’s success in the past two assignments.

"We still have challenging assignments in all tournaments we are featuring in. We will lock horns with Sudan in the coming assignment, we need to focus on the game,” he said.

“We have to be united as it was the case in the just ended games, all we need is achieving good results and live up to expectations.”

He pointed out there are no easy matches, adding the squad must prepare well for every match.

"I believe, with better preparations and hard work on the pitch we will perform well and sail through to the following phase,” he disclosed.

Stars will entertain Sudan in the first leg of the second round of CHAN qualifiers at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam at the end of this month.
