GOtv Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup defending champions, Uganda Cranes, were sent packing after being ejected by 10-man Tanzania 3-2 in post match penalties in Mombasa on Saturday.

Mrisho Ngasa grabbed a brace for Tanzania while Daniel Sserunkuma and Martin Mpuuga, netting his first for Uganda, scored for Cranes in normal time.

But the 90 minutes having failed to produce a winner, Somali referee Wish Yabarow whistled for full time, which also signaled a moment of jittery as a lottery of penalties was now confirmed.

Daniel Sserunkuma had the lifeline spot kick saved to join ill-fated penalty compatriots Godfrey Walusimbi and Khalid Aucho. Emmanuel Okwi and Hamis Kiiza scored Uganda’s two penalties.

Erasto Nyoni and Mbwana Samata missed for Tanzania but that mattered little as Amir Kiemba, Patrick Yondani and Athuman Iddi netted theirs from the spot to ensure a 3-2 post-match victory.

The fierce encounter played under sweltering conditions also saw Tanzanian Salum Abubakar sent off for an off-the-ball challenge on Aucho midway the second period, but the Kili Stars never relented, holding on to win the lottery and book a semifinal date with Kenya, who edged Rwanda 1-0.

The 2013 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup will be officially launched in Nairobi on Friday. The tournament draw will be conducted then with a title sponsor due to be unveiled during the breakfast function where ambassadors of nations taking part are lined up to be present. According to the regional football governing body Secretary General, Nicholas Musonye, all preliminary games will be played in Nairobi and Machakos. “For easier management and planning, other towns, Kisumu, Mombasa and Mumias will host some knockout matches,” Musonye disclosed on Tuesday. “We had expressed our reservation about the readiness of Kisumu but with the decision to have the preliminary matches in Nairobi, the lakeside town have more time to prepare,” the official added. Cecafa technical committee officials arrive in the country on Thursday to tour the venues and make a final submission on their fitness to host the competition that runs from November 27 to December 12. Football Kenya Federation (FKF) boss Sam Nyamweya told the organisers that the artificial turf has already been taken to Kisumu and work to lay it will commence before the end of the week. “The government approved the Sh3.6 million for the clearing for the turf. We have also agreed with the Kisumu County Government to clear the huge pile of garbage adjacent to the stadium,” the FKF boss added. The countries that have confirmed participation alongside the hosts are defending champions Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, Sudan, Zanzibar, Eritrea and Zambi ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
