CECAFA U-15 Champs: Rwanda edge Ethiopia in Asmara

Posted on Aug 21 2019

Rwanda’s Under-15 team maintained their perfect start as they edged Ethiopia 3-0 in their second Group B match played on Wednesday in the on on-going Cecafa U-15 Challenge Cup in Eritrea.

Iradukunda Siradji put Rwanda ahead in the 36th minute, putting to use a a good set-piece from Irahamye Eric. Two minutes later Iradukunda Pacifique doubled the lead with a good strike before skipper Hoziyana Kenedy snatched the third goal.

Coach Yves Rwasamanzi hailed the youngsters for the victory adding that they will need to double their efforts against Tanzania on Friday.

‘I would like to thank my players for today’s performance. We played against a good team; we didn’t allow them to play their usual tactical game while pushing harder in search for goals. Good enough we scored early in the second half,’

“We now have to concentrate on the next game against Tanzania. It’s going to be a tough match and we must fight to remain on the top spot and see if we can qualify for the semi-final,” added Rwasamanzi.

With the result, Rwanda tops Group B with six points and a superior goal difference over Uganda which also has six points.

In an earlier game, Tanzania thrashed South Sudan 6-0 to register their maiden win in two matches. Tanzania scored their first goal through Juma Kiambe Hashimu after 27 minutes. After 35 minutes the referee awarded a penalty to Tanzania after South Sudan’s Samuel Lahat James fouled Hashimu in the box.

Rabbin Katuli Sanga made no mistake sending the South Sudan goalkeeper David Doul Doluony the wrong side.

After recess Tanzania continued to pile pressure on their opponents before Joseph Gaby Fundumo made it 4-0 after 55 minutes. Later South Sudan’s goalkeeper Doluony was sent off after a rough challenge on a Tanzanian striker after 65 minutes.

Sanga later netted his second goal of the day after 72 minutes, while skipper Juma Chasambi Ladaki scored the sixth.

Tanzania lies in third position with three points while Ethiopia and South Sudan are placed fourth and fifth with one point each respectively.

Action continues on Thursday with Group A matches where Somalia hosts Sudan at 1pm before Eritrea takes on Kenya at 15:30 local time at Asmara Stadium in Eritrea.
