AFCON U-17 Qualifiers: Ethiopia score late to snatch a point against Kenya

Posted on Dec 13 2020

The Zonal Qualifiers of the Africa Cup of Nations Under 17 (CECAFA U-17) got underway this Sunday December 13, 2020 in Rubavu, at Umuganda Stadium.

Ethiopia fought strongly to score late and hold Kenya to a 2-2 draw as the Zonal Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) U-17 qualifiers for the Cecafa region kicked-off on Sunday.

Kenya took a 14th minute lead through James Gachago who capitalized on a flat footed Ethiopian defense to finish with a low shot on the right hand side of the Ethiopian goalie.

The Ethiopian team continued to defend in numbers as Kenn Kyalo missed several scoring chances. Ethiopia’s skipper Jiru Bereket had the chance to level matters after 44 minutes, but fired off target.

In the second half Kenya continued to dominate play, but it was Bereket who got it right this time with a good finish after 61 minutes. Kenya piled more pressure and it paid off in the 84th minute when Umar Rajab tapped in from close range to make it 2-1.

Ethiopia earned a penalty after the fourth official had indicated four minutes of additional time. Kenyan defender Hamisi Omari brought down Miraj Nagash in the box and the referee pointed to the spot. Nagash converted the penalty to make sure Ethiopia snatched a point from their first group A game.

Kenya’s Umar Rajab, Khamis Nyale and Hamis Omari were booked, while Ethiopia also had Esmail Shamil booked.

On Monday Rwanda’s Junior Wasps will battle Tanzania in the first Group B match at Umuganda Stadium starting from 3.30PM.
