Striker Fahad Bayo’s header with seven minutes to play was all that separated Uganda and Tanzania as the Cranes scrapped past the Kilimanjaro Stars 1-0 to book a spot in the finals against Eritrea.

Uganda Cranes head coach Johnathan McKinstry for the umpteenth made numerous changes to his starting lineup, the midfield trio of Allan Okello, Bright Anukani and Shafic Kagimu recalled, while Bayo started upfront.

While Uganda saw more of the ball, they did not create enough openings in behind, with the Kilimanjaro Stars happy to sit back and catch the hosts on the break.

The Cranes had two brilliant opportunities to go ahead, Okello placing his effort just wide of the upright, with only the keeper to beat.

In the 29th minute, Bayo was well set up by Okello but the striker was lethargic with only Ashi Manula to beat, Anukani glanced the rebound over the bar.

Manula stayed down requiring treatment and was subsequently subbed off, Metacha Mnata taking his place in goal.

Cranes goalkeeper Charles Lukwago who was undisturbed was called into action for the first time in the game, pulling off a superb fingertip save to deny Ditram Ntchimbi’s effort.

Uganda needed to dig deeper in the second stanza, and despite the constant probing and testing, they still failed to break down the resolute Tanzanian defence that had conceded only once the whole campaign.

The Cranes thought they had got their moment to go ahead when Nickson Kibabage brought down Joachim Ojera at the edge of the area , The referee initially pointed at the spot, before overturning his ruling for a free-kick.

McKinstry in an effort to give his team creativity especially in the tight spaces withdrew pacey forwards Ojera and Ben Ocen for Viane Sekajugo and youngster AbdulKarim Watambala.

That did not help Cranes’ fortunes, as wayward efforts from Watambala and Okello showed how poor the Cranes were in terms of creativity.

With the crowd rallying on the Cranes, the moment finally arrived for them, John Revita finding Kizza down the left, with the defender delivering his trademark deep cross for Bayo to nod home into an empty net.

The Cranes qualify for their final since 2015 and will go up against Eritrea who stunned Kenya to reach their first semifinal in history on Thursday, December 19th. Tanzania and Kenya will play against each other in the third place playoff on the same.

We want to win it: What they said

Uganda Head Coach Johnathan McKinstry: “This has 100% been our toughest game. But we always knew that when we got to the knockout stages, games will get very difficult, we played against a very organised and disciplined team.

“Yes we created a few chances but we didn’t take them, I have to give it to Tanzania’s players who were really disciplined tactically.”

“We want to win, but it’s not just me but everyone in the team. Apart from Mutyaba (Muzamir), we have 19 other boys who also want to win themselves.”

Tanzania head coach Juma Mgunda: “I congratulate Uganda for the victory. I think they were better than us and their fans were behind them, it was always going to be difficult.”

“I give it to my boys who gave their all but lost to a better team. We now turn our focus to the third place playoff match against Kenya.”
