Football | Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup

Malawi edge out Eritrea



Malawi registered their first win in the ongoing Cecafa after they squeezed 3-2 past Eritrea at a waterlogged pitch at Namboole on Thursday.

A brace from Chiukepo Msowoya and goal from Miciam Mhone ensured Yosief Ghide plus Hermon Tecleab efforts were not enough to deny them maximum points.

A long cross in the third minute found Msowoya in the area as he opened the scoring past a hapless keeper Fitsum Kelati.

Eritrea’s chances of staging equalizing were dashed in the 16th minute when Mhone picked a loose ball from just from the half way line to hit the back of the net.

Eritrean keeper, Kelati was on the spotlight when he came off his line to clear the ball only for him to miss it as it landed on water as that was the same fate for their opponents in the 27th minute.

They later won a free kick via Hermon Tecleab only for Malawi to clear their set piece.

Mwosoya completed his brace with seven minutes past the hour before Yosief Ghide hit the back of the net two minutes later following poor clearance from their opposition.

Hermon Tecleab goal from the spot with three minutes to time wasn’t enough to stage a comeback for the Red Sea boys as they failed to pick a point.
