Group B
Matchday Two
Uganda 4-1 South Sudan

Uganda cruised to the semifinals at the ongoing CECAFA Zonal Qualifiers for next year’s U17 Africa Cup of Nations after defeating neighbours South Sudan.

In the final group game played on Thursday at Abebe Bikila Stadium, Addis Ababa, the Uganda Cubs won 4-1 to remain perfect and thus secure a slot into the last four.

Uganda Cubs celebrate one of the goals.

Arafat Nkoola netted twice while Abubakali Walusimbi and Patrick Ssembuusi also got a goal each.

Action between Uganda and South Sudan.

Victory meant Hamza Lutalo’s charges registered their second win in as many games.

Bearing in mind that groups have three teams, Uganda completed business at this stage and now awaits for the opponent at the next level.

Either Tanzania or Somalia who both defeated hosts Ethiopia will be opponents for Uganda in the semifinals.

The two face off this Sunday with the winner leading group A and avoiding Uganda.

The finalists earn slots to represent the region at the final tournament.

Uganda is seeking to make it to that stage for the third successive time.
