CECAFA 2012:

Zanzibar shock Rwanda with a 2-1 win in Group C of the Cecafa as Malawi rallied to beat Eritrea 3-2 with a brace from Chuikepo Msowoya 

Burundi Swallows handed Tanzania's Kilimanjaro Stars a 1-0 beating at the ongoing Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in a Group B match played at Namboole Stadium, Kampala, on Wednesday to book a quarter-final slot.

Burundi made it two wins in a row to accumulate six points which earned them the last eight spot while Suleimane Ndikumana who notched the lone goal of the tie in the 53rd minute through a penalty, took his total tally to three.

Ndikumana grabbed a brace in his team’s 5-1 demolition of Somalia in their first match on Sunday. The teams had remained deadlocked for the entire first half in an even play but which could not yield results.

Both sides showed intent of grabbing a win but were unlucky to find the target. Despite the defeat, Tanzania maintained second spot in the Group three points same as Sudan which lies third by virtue of their inferior goal difference.

In another Group "B" match, Sudan's Nile Crocodiles registered their first win after beating Somalia's Oceans Stars 1-0.

Mohamed Farrid scored the lone goal for the Crocodiles in the 85th minute when the match was almost headed for a barren draw.

The Sudanese dominated the proceedings for the long spell but they were wasteful in front of goal.

The Crocodiles now have three points from two games while Somalia who, suffered a 5-1 drubbing by Burundi in the first match remains rooted at the bottom of with no point.

Sudan could have taken an early lead in the match in the sixth minute of the game when Mohamed Murtada neatly headed a corner-kick taken by Farsi Abdalalh but the alert Somali custodian Maalim Abdulahhi was up to the task parrying the ball out of danger.

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.
