East Africa joy as Tanzania seal AFCON Qualification

24 Mar 2019, 20:05

Tanzania became the fourth East Africa team to make it to the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) after overcoming Uganda Cranes 3-0 in a clash staged at the National Stadium-Dar Es Salaam on Sunday 24 March.

With Ugandan goalkeeper Dennis Onyango having warned their hosts that he was going to do all he could to stop their neighbours from sealing AFCON Qualification, Tanzania who started brightly were to take a deserved 21st-minute lead through Simon Msuva; a goal that separated the two sides heading into the break.

Erasto Nyoni was to double the hosts lead in the 51st minute after captain Mbwanna Samatta had won them a penalty after one of the Uganda defenders had handled his cross in the box.

Even before Uganda could settle, Tanzania was to add a third six minutes later through Aggrey Morris; his shot evading the Uganda defenders to beat goalkeeper Onyango.

With the win, Tanzania became the fourth East Africa team to make it to the 2019 AFCON slated for Egypt after that of Burundi, Uganda and Kenya; the latter two having qualified in the second last group games.

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will, for the first time, take place in June and July and will feature 24 teams rather than usual 16.
