Tanzania lift 2019 FERWAFA U-17 Invitational Tournament title

Posted on Apr 04 2019

Rwanda’s Junior Wasps settled for a 3-all draw against the Serengeti Boys of Tanzania in their last game of the Ferwafa U-17 Invitational tournament which climaxed on Thursday in Kigali City, Rwanda.

Coach Yves Rwasamanzi’s boys struck a last minute free kick to earn a draw courtesy of a well taken Rodrigue Isingizwe’s free kick which secured a point for the hosts who finished bottom of the standings with one point following a 3-1 opening loss against Cameroon.

The Serengeti Boys of Tanzania won the tournament’s title after fighting back from 2-0 down to take the lead at the Nyamirambo Stadium before they eventually settled for a draw.

Henson Rutonesha gave the home side the lead after 18 minutes before Keddy Nsanzimfura made it 2-0 after 20 minutes as the Serengeti Boys looked disjointed.

Tanzania U-17’s John Edmond who also scored in their 2-1 win over Cameroon pulled one back after 28 minutes. The Tanzanian youngsters fought back strongly before the first half ended 2-1.

In the second half John Edmond netted his second goal of the day after 49 minutes. The two sides continued to create several scoring opportunities, but showed lack of the finishing.

Edson Mshirakandi made it 3-2 for Tanzania after 83 minutes, but Rodrigue Isingizwe leveled matters after the fourth official had showed more minutes of added time.

The invitational tournament organized by the Rwanda Football body, FERWAFA and BINEWA Sports Management attracted Rwanda, Tanzania and Cameroon. The Cameroon U-17s beat Rwanda 3-1 in the opening match before Rwanda beat Cameroon 2-1 in the second game.

The Serengeti Boys and Cameroon used the tournament to prepare ahead of the U-17 Total Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) slated for April 14-28th in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
