Former Super Eagles’ star, Emmanuel Amuneke has been hailed by world football governing body FIFA, after his appointment as Tanzania’s national team manager on a two-year deal, reports.

Amuneke, who recently worked with FIFA as a member of the Technical Study Group at the just concluded World Cup in Russia, will hope to get the Taifa Stars back on track after drawing their first match of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers at home to Lesotho.

“He scored twice for the Super Eagles at the 1994 World Cup. Now Emmanuel Amuneke will take the reins as manager of Tanzania,” FIFA posted on their Twitter handle.

The former Al Khartoum manager’s first task will be to return the country to winning ways when they face Uganda next month as they bid to reach the tournament proper in Cameroon.

 Amuneke takes over from Salum Mayanga who was fired due to poor results.
