CAFCC FINALS: It’s Young Africans v. USM Alger

Khaled BousseliouI and Ismail Belkacemi scored in each half of the game on Wednesday night when USM Alger crashed ASEC Mimosas out of the  Confederation Cup on 2-0 on aggregate.

USM Alger will now meet Tanzania’s giants Young Africans in the CAF Confederation Cup (CAFCC) finals. The latter won 2-1 against Marumo Gallants of South Africa and advanced into the finals on 4-1 aggregate.

The only East African envoys produced a 2-1 success in the second leg match at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in South Africa on Wednesday evening.

Fiston Mayele and Kennedy Musonda netted in each half to steer their side to the finishing line of the marathon.

However, the hosts pulled one goal back in the stoppage time, thanks to Ranga Chivaviro’s header which was too little to save his team from the downfall.

He has since matched Mayele as each has scored six goals in the competition hence the latter could claim the golden boot if he nets in the finals.

History has been made as for the first time, Tanzania parade a side in the finals of the CAF managed contest.

Meanwhile, Yanga have accumulated 40m/- from President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s motivation package for scoring four goals in the two-legged semifinal encounters.
