All is set for the friendly match between La Liga side Sevilla FC and Tanzanian giants Simba SC, which will be played on Thursday evening at the Uhuru Stadium. 

The Spanish giants landed safely on Wednesday ready for the tour of Dar Es Salaam, and the eagerly-awaited match. 

Speaking ahead of the tie, Sevilla President José Castro first congratulated Simba on their win, saying it will be great to come up against one of the 'best' sides. 

"I congratulate Simba for winning the Tanzanian Premier League Championship, we have come to play with the best team, it's a lot of respect to come to Tanzania and of course we will be the first team of La Liga to come to Tanzania," he said. 

The team announced an 18-man squad for the fixture, which includes the likes of Banega, Franco Vazquez, Nolito, Promes, Bryan, Ben Yedder and Munir.

 

 

Sevilla had quite a frustrating season in La Liga and only managed to finish sixth with 59 points. 

This will be the first time a Spanish side visits Tanzania for a match, and fans are expected to throng the Uhuru Stadium for the match.
