CECAFA U-15 Champs: Rwanda vie for semi-final slot against Tanzania

Posted on Aug 23 2019

Rwanda’s Under-15 team take on Tanzania in their third Group B match set for this afternoon as they aim to reach the semi-final of the on-going Cecafa U-15 Challenge Cup in Eritrea.

Kick-off for today’s game is at 13:00 local time.

Top of Group B with six points, Yves Rwasamanzi will be seeking a win in today’s match to cement the last four slot. Tanzania is ranked third on the log with three points.

A loss would jeopardize the Junior Wasps chances of progressing to the next round, meaning they would have to ensure that they seal a win over Uganda in their final match on Sunday.

Speaking on Wednesday, Rwasamanzi well knows the challenge that awaits his team today against a strong Tanzanian outfit.

“Our game against Tanzania is going to be a tough one considering their team strength. However, we must fight to remain on top of our group. We equally have a good team and boys know what we expect from them, so we go into the encounter with a positive mood,” added Rwasamanzi.

In the other game of the day, second-placed Uganda take on lowly ranked South Sudan at 15:30.

Meanwhile, Kenya and Burundi booked their semi-final slots. On Thursday, Kenya defeated hosts Eritrea 2-1 which sent them to 10 points on the log, while Burundi who have seven points and play their last group game against Sudan on Saturday have also made it to the knock out stage.

In an earlier Group A match Somalia beat Sudan 2-0 to register their first win in the tournament. Mahad Abduqadir and Abdullahi Omar Salad netted for the Somali team.

The top two teams from each group will automatically qualify to the semis, set to be played on August 28, while the final has been scheduled for August 30, 2019, in Asmara.
