Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Sudan clinch third place



The Desert Hawks of Sudan edged out hosts Kilimanjaro Stars 1-0 in the third and fourth place play off tie of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Senior Challenge Cup at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Saturday.

Mohammed Shaikh Eldin scored the winner with a stunning striker six minutes from time to settle an entertaining encounter and ensure that the Sudanese side walked away with $10,000.

Third place play off matches are usually entertaining due to lack of tension and this was no different with both sides having a real go.

Both goalkeepers Juma Kasseja and Maghoub were the undoubted stars of the match pulling off save after save.

Kilimanjaro Stars went closest on 76 minutes with Mwinyi Kazimoto rattling the upright with the keeper beaten.

Then came the defining moment as Eldin, who had come as a substitute for the injured Amir Suleiman, collected a pass from the midfield and arrowed a powerful shot into the far corner from 25 yards.
