Not even playing at home would help the Mozambique U20 side to overturn the 4-0 first leg result by Uganda as they settled for a 1-1 draw only for the latter to win 5-1 on aggregate for the East African side.
Mozambique’s Clesio had given the home side the lead on 35 minutes, something they held onto till half time as the hosts were trying to look for three more goals that would see them maybe take the game to extra time or even win it.

matters in a game the Ugandan side dominated only for the home side to struggle and salvage some pride. Uganda now plays three time champions, the Black Satellites of Ghana with the first leg in Kampala on the weekend of July 27-29. Six time record champions Nigeria will be playing Tanzania on the same weekend.
