TANZANIA|SHIFTMEDIA| The Kenya Uganda soccer rivary as ignited once again following a 3-1 thrashing of Kenya by Uganda in the under 20 Africa cup qualifiers.
The Uganda National Under 20 football team (The Hippos) qualified for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations U-20 tournament in Mauritania scheduled for next year.
The Hippos thumped Kenya 3-1 win in the first U-20 CECAFA semi-final clash at the Black Rhino Academy sports stadium in Karatu, Tanzania.
Striker Ivan Bogere scored a brace, including a kick from the penalty mark to compliment defender Kenneth Semakula’s opener.
Half time had ended 2-0 in favour of Morley Byekwaso’s charges. Enock Wanyama scored a late consolation for Kenya Rising Stars inside the last ten minutes of the game but was late for a comeback.
Uganda seals the berth to the 2021 AFCON U20 finals and awaits either Tanzania or South Sudan in the final of the U20 Cecafa tournament.
Hosts Tanzania play South Sudan in the second semi-final clash on Monday evening at the same Black Rhino Academy facility in Karatu.
