THE Tanzania Under-15 boys from both Mainland and Zanzibar will have the opportunity to advance to the CECAFA U-15 Boys Championship semifinals if they win their matches today.
The fate of the envoys will be decided today as they play their second tournament games.
Zanzibar will face off against Somalia, while Tanzania Mainland will play against Rwanda. Both matches are to stage at the Fufa Technical Centre in Njeru, Kampala.
The envoys are in a favourable position to thrive in the Under 15 semifinals as they lead Group B.
Zanzibar and Tanzania Mainland are tied with three points each, but Zanzibar is superior in terms of goal average, having snatched the top spot after beating Rwanda 3-0.
Tanzania Mainland secured a second place with a 1-0 win over Somalia at the Fufa Technical Centre in Njeru, Kampala over the weekend.
After tomorrow’s games, the two envoys will meet on Saturday to complete Group B matches. The tournament features eight boys’ teams across two groups, A and B.
The other group comprises Uganda, Ethiopia, Djibouti, and South Sudan.
Interestingly, this year’s tournament has seen Uganda dominating Group A, with Djibouti suffering two heavy defeats, losing to Uganda 15-0 and Ethiopia 8-1.
Djibouti’s envoys have had a tough time this season and are out of the tournament. They will play their last group game against South Sudan on Friday.
