Cecafa Cup 2019: Cranes qualify for semis

Uganda Cranes qualified for the semifinals of the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup after successfully winning a third Group A match against Eritrea at the StarTimes Stadium Lugogo on Wednesday evening.

Midfielder Nicolas Kasozi got the lead for Uganda Cranes in the 58th minute with a long shot that beaten Eritrea goalkeeper Kibrom Solomun from 30 yards.

Mustafa Kizza doubled the lead 10 minutes to time from the spot-kick after Micheal Habte intercepted Kizza’s freekick with his arm inside the area.

Second-half substitute Joachim Ojera who came in for Viane Sekajugo increased the momentum of the game through the right side. He created several chances at goal but final efforts from Joel Madondo failed to hit the target.
