CECAFA: Uganda Qualifies As Rwanda Bows Out

thumb sans-serif;”>On the other hand, Rwanda will face an early exit after losing to Uganda in their opening game in group C and again losing to Sudan in their second game (1-0).

This left Rwanda stranded and on pressure of looking for a must-win against helpless Eritrea who have also lost their second game (3-0) to Uganda.

Rwanda has now only one chance of qualifying to the next round as best losers which is to secure a win against Eritrea on Thursday during their last group C game.

Cranes fans go mad with excitement

Meanwhile, Emmanuel Okwi who didn’t play for Uganda in the opening game after suffering from Malaria proved exemplary as he scored two goals that helped Uganda Cranes to bypass Eritrea easily.

Hamis ‘Diego’ Kiiza added on another goal after scoring a penalty to make it (3-0).

Kiiza scored one goal

In the second half, Uganda looked so relaxed hence scoring no goal which at a certain time gave a breathing space to Eritrea.

Uganda will be back again on Thursday to play against Sudan.

However, both Uganda and Sudan have all qualified for quarter finals.
