*Uganda Cranes qualifies 6-0 on aggregate

Uganda required three goals from Fahad Bayo, substitute Viane Ssekajugo and Allan Okello as they progressed to the finals of the Chan 2020 tournament that will be hosted by Cameroon.

Viane Sekajugo

Vipers Sports Club forward Fahad Bayo scored the opener as early as the fifth minute.

Bayo controlled a well delivered cross from the left by Mustafa Kizza and finished past goalkeeper Onesime Rukundo for the opener.

Seven minutes later, Burundi’s Iddy Muselemu shot from distance and the Cranes’ goalie Charles Lukwago had a slight touch for the visitors’ corner kick.

Uganda scored the second goal through Viane Ssekajugo in the 71st minute.

The Wakiso Giants left footed player controlled a high ball from Willa before he poked it past the goalkeeper Rukundo.

Uganda Cranes’ final change witnessed the dreadlocked Dan Muzeyi Sserunkuma take over Fahad Bayo with 12 minutes to play.

Okello scored the third goal following a school boy mistake by the goalkeeper Rukundo.

Uganda has now qualified for the fifth consecutive Chan finals following earlier successes in 2011 (Sudan), South Africa (2013), Rwanda (2016) and lately Morocco (2018).
