With both teams already qualified for the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations, Mauritania 2021, Uganda edged hosts Tanzania 4-1 to lift the CECAFA U-20 Championship trophy on Wednesday (2 December 2020) at Black Rhino Stadium in Arusha.
Goals from Richard Basangwa, Steven Sserwadda, Ivan Bogere, and Keneth Semakula in both halves were enough for Uganda to lift the trophy at the expense of the hosts. Abdul Suleiman scores Tanzania’s consolation goal at the half-hour mark.
Uganda’s victory served as revenge after Tanzania won the same title in Jinja, Uganda last year. Tanzania then defeated Uganda in the quarterfinals, before beating Sudan and Kenya respectively to win the title.
South Sudan finished third after beating Kenya 2-1 earlier on Wednesday.
Tanzania midfielder Pascal Msindo was named the tournament’s most valuable player, while Ivan Bogere of Uganda and Abdul Suleiman of Tanzania finished as co-top scorers with five goals each.
