U17 CECAFA/AFCON Qualifiers: Uganda Cubs Humiliate Kenya to Storm Semifinal
The Uganda Cubs got off the mark against Kenya who drew Ethiopia 2-2 in the opener with a humiliating 5-0 score against Kenya.
Forward Oscar Mawa scored a hat-trick, Travis Mutyaba and Ronald Madoi one each as Uganda Cubs ran riot against neighbors Kenya in the ongoing U17 CECAFA/AFCON qualifiers in Rwanda.
The win sent Uganda to the semis before they play Ethiopia on Friday 18th December 2020 in their last group A game.
