Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Zanzibar thrash Somalia



Kassim Suleiman Selembe, Hamad Omar and Morris Aggrey Canavaro’s goals registered Zanzibar’s first win as they saw off Somalia 3-0 in the Cecafa Tusker Senior Challenge Cup at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Thursday.

The win ensured that the Islanders kept up their slim hopes of making the last eight as one of the best losers.

It was a no contest from onset with Selembwa, Khamis Mucha and Abdalla Juma running rings around the Somalis.

And they did not wait for long before the opening as Selembe latched onto a pass from the midfield to beat Somalia goalkeeper Qalid Ali after just eight minutes.

Substitute Hamad Omar, on for injured Abdalla Seif Ali, doubled the advantage after Qalid had parried Selembe’s shot back into play on 51 minutes.

Centre back Morris Aggrey added the third when he headed in from a corner with the clock ticking away.

Coach Abdul Fatah’s Somalia should have pulled one back on their first real attack when Abdlahi Nuru beat three Zanzibari defenders but goalkeeper Ali Mwadini punched away.

Zanzibar end the group matches on four points while Somalia on none having lost all three games, conceding 11 goals and scoring just one.
