Twiga coach unveils squad
Twiga Stars head coach Charles Mkwasa yesterday unveiled a provisional squad of 30 players who would embark on training ahead of international meets next month.
Mkwasa said the team would start training sessions three times a week at the Karume Memorial Stadium effective tomorrow.
The squad is expected to be trimmed to 25 players after two weeks training. The final line-up would then camp at the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) hostel ahead of the international friendlies to be announced later by the soccer body.
During the two-week training stint, players would be off the campus.
Out of the 30 selected players 13 are new comers.
More players from Mwanza, Mara, Zanzibar, Arusha and Dodoma would also be added in the future so as the team to portray national image.
