Uganda Cranes maintained their unbeaten run in Group ‘A’ of the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup after hammering South Sudan 4-0 in the final group match played at Namboole on Friday.

Lethal danger man Brain Umony put The Bright Stars to the sword with a well taken double in the 24th and 39th minute while Robert Ssentogo added another just two minutes after the breather before Hamis Kiiza struck in the 78th minute to complete the rout.

The win is a perfect run for the Bob Williamson coached side after beating Kenya’s Harambee Stars 1-0 in the opener and overcoming a challenge from Ethiopia’s Black Lions by a similar margin in their second match.

For South Sudan, it was a harsh welcome in the regional tournament since they received autonomy from their northern neighbours.

The Bright Stars as they are nick-named, failed to shine in their debut season losing all their matches to exit without a single point.

Uganda finish on top of the group on nine points two ahead of group runners-up Kenya on six points while Ethiopia finished third.

Cranes coach Bob Williamson is seeking to defend the crown he won last year in Dar es Salaam after beating Rwanda’s Amavubi 3-2 in the final.

Who will win Cecafa Senior Challenge 2012?

Hayatou gets Cecafa backing

Hayatou gets Cecafa backing The Council for East and Central African Football Associations (Cecafa) has unanimously decided to support Issa Hayatou in his bid to serve another term as president of the Confederation of African Football (Caf). The elections will take place next March in Morocco. The decision was taken at the Cecafa congress in Uganda on Friday with the body giving Hayatou its backing because of his record so far, particularly in the area of football development. The Cecafa members who have votes are Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Djibouti, Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and Eritrea. Zanzibar is the other Cecafa member but does not get a vote because it is not a member of Caf or Fifa.
