Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Heroes storm semifinals



The Zanzibar Heroes became the second team to make the last four of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup after beating Burundi 6-5 in a penalty shootout at Lugogo on Monday.

Tanzania were the first through following their 2-0 victory over Rwanda. Abdallah Othman scored the winning penalty for Zanzibar after normal time had ended goalless.

Burundi were the better side throughout the 90, with Zanzibar defending with their lives. However, when Ugandan referee Denis Batte signaled for spot kicks, they fell short.

Their skipper Selemani Ndikumana, who picked up a knock very early in the game, was the first to take but skied his kick as Burundi started the shootout in the worst possible way.

Khamis Mcha Khamis was up next and he didn’t disappoint, confidently slotting it past Burundi goalkeeper Arthur Arakaza to make it 1-0.

Styve Nzigamasabo leveled for Burundi and the scoring spree went on until Nadir ‘Cannavaro’ Haroub missed his for Zanzibar and Abdoul Fiston had his saved by Ally Mwadini.

Adeyom Saleh, Jaku Juma Jaku, Nuhu Haji and Aggrey Morris also scored for Zanzibar. Amisi Tambwe, Nduwarugira, Nkurikiye and Duhatindavyi were the other scorers for Burundi. Zanzibar will on Thursday face winner between Kenya and Malawi.
