Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Sudan march on to Cecafa semis



Ten man Sudan are through to the semifinals of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Challenge Cup after beating Burundi 2-0 on Monday.

Amir Ramei Abdelnabi and Mohammed Musa scored in either half as the desert hawks cruised to the last four after easily winning their quarterfinal tie.

Sudan were favourites going into the game and they showed intent right from the onset peppering the Burundi goal with attempts from the word go.

Khalifa Ahmed hit a powerful shot goalwards on 16 minutes with goalkeeper Vladimir Niyonkuru just about managing to keep his effort out.

Eight minutes later, Bakite had the Burundi custodian scrambling to save his shot and Elrahaman Ishag the forced another save as the Burundians goal lived a charmed life.

Abdelnabi notched the opener heading home a right wing cross past Niyonkuru four minutes from halftime.

A goal down, Burundi roused themselves from their slumber with Fuadi Ndayisenga forcing Sudan keeper Maghoub was alert to the danger.

Sudan sealed the win on the hour mark when Musa picked the ball in the box; beat his marker before slotting the ball home from 16 yards.

Burundi though were not going out without a fight with skipper Floribert Ndayisaba striking the woodwork with a ferocious freekick on 62 minutes.

The victors were reduced to ten men 20 minutes from time after Nagmeldin Abdalla sent off for retaliation for kicking out at Karim Nizigiyamana.

A man up; Burundi were then awarded a penalty after Bashir Koko brought down Ndayisenga but Hassan Hakizimana saw his spotkick hit the crossbar and bounce out.
