Midfielder Hassan Kapalata, goalkeeper Rahim Sheih, and fullback Israel Patrick, who were named in Tanzania’s U-20 squad, Ngorongoro Heroes, are KMC FC other players who will miss the club’s preparations.
The KMC FC midfielder Kenny Ally, whose father passed away recently, will too miss the squad’s training.
The team’s officials stated players that have returned to the training are in good condition and will any time go for the buildup.
