Yanga Retain Kagame Cup


Ugandan international Hamisi Kiiza broke the deadlock a minute before half time after a defensive blunder by Azam’s defender Said Morad whose back pass was intercepted by the Yanga striker Kiiza who then lobbed the ball over an advancing Munishi in Azam’s goal.

Azam worked hard to get back into the game but the Yanga defence marshalled by defender Nardir Haroub remained steadfast.

Haruna Niyonzima’s creativity at the middle of the park was driving Yanga as his deft passes and sublime runs troubled the Azam defence and deep in injury time he set up Said Bahanuzi who blasted a screamer to give Yanga the deserved 2-0 win with his sixth goal of the tourney.

After the final whistle the multitude of fans sang song of praises as they ululated to Yanga’s win.

The win saw Yanga pocket USD 30,000 while the losers took home silver and USD 20,000.
