CECAFA Kagame Cup 2021 (Group B):
- Messager Ngozi (Burundi) 1-1 KMKM (Zanzibar)
- Azam (Tanzania) 2-0 KCCA (Uganda)
It was a false start for the CECAFA Kagame Cup defending champions Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) as they lost 2-0 to Azam at the Azam Sports complex, Chamazi on Monday night.
The floodlit game was spiced up by two second half goals by Paul Peter Kasunda.
KCCA had a better opening half, even hitting the cross bar through Denis Iguma’s headed ball.
Azam is now top of the standings with three points and two goals in the bag.
Burundi’s Messager Ngozi and Zanzibar’s KMKM shared the spoils in the earlier group B game played.
Meanwhile, a 10 man Express endured the last 20 minutes of their group A contest to win 1-0 against South Sudan’s Atlabara.
Erick Kenzo Kambale scored the lone goal on the evening, a well drilled 5th minute penalty.
Abel Eturude was sent off in the 69th minute for unsportmanship play.
