SPORTS NEWS: ...Maximo praises team

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

TAIFA Stars head coach Marcio Maximo was full of praises for his boys after holding Lions of Teranga 1-1 yesterday in Mwanza.

"I am proud of my boys and I believe all Tanzanians are proud of this team. Senegal were favourites but we showed what we are capable of," said Maximo. He added: "We deserved victory, but we still have a chance to reach Ghana next year provided we collect three points from the match against Burkina Faso."
