2019 AFCON U17: CAF appoint Amuneke as Technical Group member


With few days to the start of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) U17, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has listed former Super Eagles winger and Tanzania coach Emmanuel Amuneke as a member of Technical Study Group.

The former Barcelona left winger made history last weekend as he qualified the Taifa Stars of Tanzania for the 2019 AFCON after 32 years of waiting.

He also played a similar role in the 2019 AFCON in Niger Republic where Nigeria’s Flying Eagles finished fourth.

Tanzania will host this year’s edition of the AFCON U17 with the host country playing in the same group with Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets.

Amuneke was the last coach that won the FIFA U17 World Cup for Nigeria in 2015.
