Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli will give each of the Taifa Stars players a parcel of land as reward for booking the nation’s place in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Taifa Stars thrashed Uganda 3-0 at the National Stadium, Dar es Salaam on Sunday to end a 39-year wait for a place in the continental showpiece.

Simon Msuva, Erasto Nyoni, and Aggrey Morris scored a goal each to hand the side a ticket to Egypt in June.

After the historic feat, the side met the President at the State House on Monday, who has awarded them with a piece of land each in Dodoma.
