Tanzania and Zambia played last in a muddy Machakos ground hence hindering some ‘good’ action and free exhibition of skills.

It is here that Uganda will take on Rwanda on Friday.

Zambia has been playing under their new coach, Patrice Beaumelle.

The Frenchman has not enjoyed the best of starts since his appointment in October after taking over from his ex-boss, Herve Renard, who left to join French League One club, Sochaux.

Beaumelle has lost all his last three games in friendlies away to Brazil, Jordan and Egypt, respectively.

However, the Frenchman condemned the situation of the pitch which “has hindered our team from many things we would have done at the pitch.

“Our plan was spoiled but let us plan for next two group matches,” he said.

His counterpart, the Tanzanian head coach, Kim Poulsen, said they were lucky because players managed to have the game approach he had taught them.

Action continues tomorrow with Sudan taking on Eritrea and Uganda, the defending champions, will be taking on Rwanda.
