Cecafa-Afcon U17 Qualifier: Rwanda edge Burundi to reach Semis

Posted on Aug 13 2018

Rwanda’s U-17 team, Junior Wasps, qualified to the semi-finals of the CECAFA- CAF U-17 African Cup of Nations qualifying tournament after defeating neighbors Burundi 4-3 in a second group A match played on Monday at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The Junior Wasps snatched an early lead in the 22nd minute through Moise Nyarugabo following a defensive blunder. Burundi equalized after four minutes through Arsene Iradukunda.

Rodrigue Isingizwe and Keddy Nsanzimfura scored second and third goals in the 42nd and 45th minute. Rwanda went into half time leading 3-1.

In the second half, Moise Nyarugabo snatched a double, fourth goal for Rwanda in the 51st minute and his fourth overall in the competition.

However, six minutes later Munaba Edson scored the second goal for Burundi before Iratanga Flavier scored the third goal for Burundi.

With fifteen minutes to the end of the game, Rwanda was reduced to ten men after Jean Ishimwe received a second yellow card following a second bookable offence.

With one game remaining against Tanzania which will be played on Tuesday, August 21, Rwanda is already assured of a place in the last four with a maximum six points following their opening 3-1 victory against South Sudan on Saturday.

Action continues on Tuesday with Group B matches. South Sudan will host Djibouti at 1pm while Djibouti will take on Ethiopia at 4pm, all matches will be staged at Azam Sports Complex in Chamazi.

The qualifiers of the Africa U-17 Cup of Nations were modified early this year, with each of the six zones playing at their backyard to produce the winners that will contest for the Cup next year.

Tanzania has a direct ticket to the tournament by virtue of being the host nation.
