Fans could not stand such a passage from football officials

The national football teams of Zanzibar and Tanzania have expressed a desire to play with the Russian team in Russia in 2024 or to host Valery Karpov's team. Zanzibar is not a member of FIFA, as it is an autonomous region within the Republic of Tanzania. Players of the Tanzanian national team can play for the Zanzibar team.

President of the Zanzibar Football Federation Suleiman Jabir said that possible matches were discussed on November 16 at a sports forum in Moscow.

"We discussed some issues of cooperation with managers and organizers of competitions from the Russian Federation. The Russian Federation is a good partner with an excellent reputation for Zanzibar. The friendship between our countries has been going on for a very long time, since the days of the USSR, and we value all relations with your country, including sports," sport24 quoted Jabir as saying.

In the comments, Russian fans threw a trademark hysteria in response to the African official's interview. Users recall the scandalous situation with the arrival of the Cuban national team, which did not have the necessary equipment and the players had to go shopping at the nearest sports store.

"Sportmaster is already preparing for the arrival. They made the best demos for 3700", "It would be better if they played with Limpopo. But it's not bad", "At the same time, we can sign agreements on cooperation in the space sector. So that we don't have to get up twice... " users joke.

Fans mock the level of future opponents.

"And you can also play friendly matches with Narnia, Gotham, Zion and the country of Oz. In the first case, you can even save money on logistics, and go straight from your locker at the training base to the right field," they write online.
