Okwi steers Cranes to quarters



An Emmanuel Okwi hat-trick and a Dan Wagaluka strike were enough to book Uganda Cranes a place in the last eight of the Cecafa Tusker Challenge Cup as they thrashed Somalia 4-0 at Azam Stadium on Monday.

The Cranes now top Group B on six points after two matches having beaten Zanzibar 2-1 in the opening match.

Burundi are second on four points following their 4-1 demolition of Somalia and a one-all draw with Zanzibar. Somalia are bottom with no point.

The Cranes attack of Mike Sserumaga and Mutyaba, Okwi, Robert Ssentongo and Wagaluka had the Somalis on the back foot for the entire first half but were unable to find a breakthrough.

But the group’s whipping boys were unable to hold on conceding two minutes after the recess when Wagaluka’s cross from the right found its way past the Somali goalkeeper Qalid Ali for Uganda’s first.

Okwi added the second on 57 minutes when he headed in Simeon Masaba’s cross from the right as Bobby Williamson’s side continued to press.

The Simba striker netted his second when he tapped in substitute Moses Oloya’s low ball before he completed his hat-trick after latching onto a Godfrey Walusimbi long ball to beat Ali.

The only downside of the match was when Cranes skipper and Somali captain Andy Mwesigwa and Yasin Ali were red carded late into the game for indecent behaviour. They both will miss their next games.

Uganda are seeking to win the title for the 12th time. The Cranes last group game is on Thursday against Burundi.
