THE Tanzania Parliamentary team, Bunge FC, is expected to depart for Nairobi, Kenya on Wednesday to compete in East African Inter-Parliamentary Football Tournament.
Speaking ahead of the trip, the Bunge team captain, Idd Azan, oozed confidence saying they have trained well in their three weeks camp in Arusha where they played four friendlies games.
He said the team put on impressive performances during the build-up games and was optimistic over their chances in the regional showpiece to compete teams from six countries.
"We did not lose even a single match as we settled for two draws and two wins," Azan, a legislator for Ilala said. He said they decided to go for intensive training to ensure that they win this year's trophy which they lost during the previous edition staged in Kampala, last year.
Azan who is the first-choice goalie of the Bunge team, remains the only injury concern so far, but he was optimistic that he will recover in time for the tournament. He said that Bunge FC players are raring to go and cannot wait to confront their counterparts from Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, East African Parliament and hosts Kenya.
