Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Malawi held by Sudan



Malawi and Sudan played out the first goalless of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Senior Challenge Cup in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday.

Neither of the two sides could find a breakthrough leaving Group C delicately poised. Malawi are top with four points while Kenya who beat Ethiopia 2-0 earlier in the day are second with three points. Sudan are third with two while Ethiopia has one.

Sudan had the better of the early exchanges with Omar Ahmed testing Malawi keeper Charles Swini from long range early on.

The Flames however created the best opening chance on 19 minutes but both Frank Banda and John Banda fail to reach an Emmanuel Zoya cross at the far post.

Banda fluffed another chance on the stroke of halftime failing to turn in the rebound after Joseph Kamwend’s stinging freekick had been pushed back to play.

Sudan created the better chances in the second half with Mohammed Tahir Osman twisting and turning before shooting straight at Swini on 50 minutes.

The striker was a lively presence and he went close again on 69 minutes cutting inside from the right only for him to then screw his shot wide.

After the match, Malawi coach Kinnah Phiri said he was content with the point, “the games are very tough because of the heat and I commend my boys because they did well today getting us a point. We shall now face our last match confident that we can still qualify for the quarterfinals.”

His opposite number Mubarak Suleiman was angry at the officiating, “I brought some players to Cecafa to condition them for Afcon but the referee was very poor. He only called for fouls against us and this made me angry. For us, it’s not about qualifying but exposing some of our young boys but we need good refereeing.”
