CECAFA U20 Final: Tanzania Vs Uganda , 3PM (EAT)
The Uganda Under-20 team – the Hippos – this Wednesday attempt to win a maiden Cecafa Under-20 Championship when they take on hosts and holders Tanzania in the final at the Black Rhino Academy, Karatu in the afternoon.
The Hippos’ head coach Morley Byekwaso anticipates a great finale. This is because, he says both sides have ball players and he asserts, the better organized team on the day will wear the victor’s crown.
“I anticipate a great game of football. Both countries have both players and the better side on the day will win the trophy,” Byekwaso told Fufa Media on Tuesday.
Uganda beat Kenya 3-1 while Tanzania edged South Sudan 1-0 in the semi finals.
Consequently, the two finalists earned tickets to next year’s Afcon Under-20 final in Mauritania.
However, Byekwaso and his boys feel more history needs to be written as they seek to dethrone Tanzania and win the country her first ever regional Under 20 males trophy.
Meanwhile, before the final, Kenya and South Sudan will tussle it out to determine who finishes third.
