Zambia will face Sudan in Tuesday’s Cecafa Cup semifinals at the ongoing tournament in Kenya.
Sudan booked their semifinal date against Zambia after a convincing 2-0 win over Ethiopia in their Horn of Africa derby in Sunday’s Cecafa quarterfinal doubleheader played in Mombasa.
Sudan took the lead in the 23rd minute courtesy of an own goal from Ethiopia defender Salahdin Barcecho who turned in opponents captain Hamoda Bashir’s corner.
Ethiopia fell further behind in the 69th minute when striker Ibrahim Salah tapped the ball past Ethiopia goalkeeper Derete Alemu from in Bashir’s free kick.
Salah’s goal took his tally to four goals, one more than previous joint top scorer Festus Mbewe who failed to find the target in Zambia’s 4-3 post-match penalty win over Burundi following a scoreless 90 minutes.
Sudan and Zambia will meet in Mombasa on December 10 in a 15h00 kickoff for a place in the December 12 finals in Nairobi.
Kenya and Tanzania will battle for a place in the final at 12h30 in Machakos.
