Cranes in Cecafa quarter finals


Kenya 2 South Sudan 0

Uganda 1 Ethiopia 0

Brian Umony scored the cranes’ sole goal against Ethiopia to push Uganda into the quarter finals of this year’s Cecafa-Tusker Cup.

The Uganda Cranes on Tuesday afternoon became the first team ‘A’ in the region to qualify for this year’s Cecafa-Tusker Cup quarter finals after registering a second consecutive win.

The Cranes edged Ethiopia 1-0 in their second group stage fixture to go top of the table. KCCA FC player Brian Umony netted the Cranes’ sole goal in the first half of the game. Earlier in the day, Kenya had beaten South Sudan 2-0 to create themselves chances of qualifying into the knock-out stages.

Coach Bobby Williamson hailed his boys describing their performance as having been very good despite the slim win. His counterpart confessed, he had played a brilliant side. Ethiopia is the only country in the Cecafa region that qualified to play in the finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Uganda now has six points with one game at hand against South Sudan. Kenya is placed in the second position with 3 points and 2 goals ahead of Ethiopia with 3pts and one goal. South Sudan has so far lost all its first two games.
